Adding an Application to an Instance

Because an instance of Notification Services can host multiple applications, applications can share the same set of subscribers, and the applications can be administered as a group.

You can add applications after you deploy an instance. To add an application, gather application files, add the information about the application to the instance configuration, and then update the instance using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio or the nscontrol update command.

When Notification Services adds the application, it creates any necessary databases and database schemas, as defined in the application definition. Notification Services then creates the database objects for the application in the specified database and schema.

Notification Services examines the instance configuration and all referenced application definitions during the update process. If you have made other changes to the instance or other applications, those changes are also applied during the update.
