Application.DatabaseName Property

Gets or sets the name of the application database.

Namespace: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Nmo
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo (in microsoft.sqlserver.smo.dll)

public string DatabaseName { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_DatabaseName ()

/** @property */
public void set_DatabaseName (String value)

public function get DatabaseName () : String

public function set DatabaseName (value : String)

Property Value

A String, between 1 and 128 characters in length, specifying the name of the application database.

Specify this property only if you are creating a new application. Existing applications already have a database, and the database name cannot be changed after creating the application. If you attempt to change a database name, Notification Services Management Objects (NMO) throws an exception.

If you do not specify a database name when creating a Notification Services application, the default database name is a concatenation of the instance name and the application name.

If you specify a DatabaseName, you should provide a SchemaName for all application database objects. The default schema is dbo.

Database names can be up to 128 characters in length. For more information about database names, see the database_name parameter in CREATE DATABASE (Transact-SQL).

The specified database must be set to 90 compatibility mode.

The following example shows how to set the name of the application database and the schema for application objects:

myApplication.DatabaseName = "MyInstMyApp";
myApplication.SchemaName = "MyAppSchema";

Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
