Setting Up the Push Notification Sample Application

The Push Notification Sample Application source code is installed by default with the Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Web Services Software Development Kit (SDK) in the directory in which the Exchange 2010 Web Services SDK is installed, in the \Samples\PushNotification\ folder. This sample includes two applications. The first application is a client Web service that accepts notifications from the computer on which the Client Access server role is installed. This must be set up first. The second application creates the subscription. The second application uses the URL to the client Web service to define where the notification messages should be sent.

Note Note

This sample application is intended for instructional purposes only and is not meant to be installed in a production environment.

The following prerequisites are needed to build and use the Push Notification Sample Application:

  • Microsoft.NET Framework

  • MicrosoftVisual Studio .NET

  • MicrosoftInternet Information Services (IIS)

  • Exchange 2010

  • The types.xsd and messages.xsd schema files that are found in the EWS virtual directory of the computer that is running Exchange 2010

To build the push notification client Web services application

  1. Open the client Web services project.

  2. Navigate to the directory in which the Exchange 2010 Web Services SDK is installed, open the Samples\PushNotification\PushNotificationClient\ folder, and double-click the PushNotificationClient.sln file.

  3. From the Build menu, select Build Web Site.

  4. Publish the Web site to an IIS virtual directory.

Note Note

When the client Web service is published to IIS, make sure that the virtual directory uses ASP.NET 2.0 for the client application.

To set up and build the subscriber application

  1. Navigate to the directory in which the Exchange 2010 Web Services SDK is installed, open the Samples\PushNotification\PushNotificationSubscriber\ folder, and double-click the PushNotificationSubscriber.csproj file.

  2. Update the ExchangeServiceBindingUrl property to identify the location of the Exchange Web service.

  3. Update the ExchangeServiceBindingCredentials property to identify the name, password, and domain of the user whose mailbox will be monitored for events.

  4. Update the PushSubscriptionRequestTypeURL property to identify the location of the client Web service that will receive the event notifications. This URL is defined by the location of the client Web service.

  5. From the Build menu, select Build Solution.
