Notification Services Views

Views provide a consolidated look at instance and application data. Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Notification Services provides the views documented in this section for debugging, tracking, and troubleshooting Notification Services applications.


Microsoft strongly recommends that you use the documented views and stored procedures instead of working with Notification Services tables directly; the data in these tables must be inserted, updated, and deleted in specific ways that are enforced by stored procedures.
