Developing Subscription Management Applications
Subscriber and subscription information is entered into the Notification Services system by a subscription management application. This is often a Web application based on Microsoft Active Server Page (ASP page) or ASP.NET technologies. You are required to develop this application, but the Notification Services API provides a number of classes to simplify the collection and submission of subscriber and subscription data. It also supplies several enumeration classes, to make it easy to select values for user options such as device types, time zones, and subscriber locales.
