ProtocolEnumeration Class

Represents the collection of delivery protocols in a given Notification Services application. This class is deprecated in Microsoft SQL Server 2005.

Namespace: Microsoft.SqlServer.NotificationServices

In SQL Server 2005, classes for creating and managing instances and applications are in the Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Nmo namespace. This class is replaced by the Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Nmo.NotificationClass.NotificationClassProtocols property, which returns a NotificationClassProtocolCollection object. This class is included only for compatibility with earlier versions of Notification Services and may not be supported in a future release.

The ProtocolEnumeration class allows you to iterate through the set of delivery protocols available defined for a given Notification Services instance. It also provides an Item property to return a Protocol object that represents a specific delivery protocol.


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.
