    Hi All,

    Is there any custom notification system available in ASP.Net or some sort of
    API? I don't want to use SQL Server Notification service it is so
    complicated and also i don't want to write my own service because i don't
    have time to development and testing.

    Actually right now i have two types of notification
    1. My Reminder (By Email / Pager)
    2. Email To Friend

    1. My Reminder:
    User can set reminder on a particular datetime that he/she specify and
    he/she will get notify by email/pager when the program (Video) in on air.

    2. Email To Friend: If user wants to send the link of any program than the
    user will be notify by email.

    I want every email message customizable by using templates.

    Please suggest if this type of custom notifcation system is available in the
    market or i have to write my own?

    Regards
    Adi

    Hi Adeel,

    As for notification system, so far the built-in one provided by ASP.NET or
    NET 2.0 is the Sql data cache dependecy which can automatically notify the
    client of any change at database side. It does not rely on SQL Notification
    service, but does require the "service broker" at SQL server side.

    If you want to build some event or notification like function in your
    ASP.NET application, maybe you can have alook at background tasking which
    can be done via some worker threads running in the background of ASP.NET
    web application.

    Here are some web articles discussing on this:
