Sending large notifications.
I have some clarifications on Notification services.
Following is the scenario
when a record is updated by a user, the same record needs to be sent to
all the other online users. And here we are using notification services
for pushing data from the server to the client machines.
I have to send the entire dataset row(that got modified/added). So one
way of doing that is to get the XML of the Dataset and send this as a
part of the notification message by inserting the XML as one of the
notification fields. Here the problem that I am facing is, notification
fields have a restriction of 8000 characters. For the notification
fields, the long data types (like text, ntext etc) are not supported.
The questions that I have is
Is there some way we can manipulate the notification message that is
sent? Only way I could find is setting a notification field with the
value. But the problem here is the 8000 characters' limit. Is there
any other way?
