Third-party libraries can be employed to customize the notification message to an output format required by the client application or service. For example, the server extension can use a third-party XML parsing library to convert the change notifications to a SOAP XML format.
Notification mode can only be used with an PingDirectory Server, Nokia 8661 Directory Server, PingDirectoryProxy server, or Nokia 8661 Directory Proxy Server as the source endpoint.
PingDataSync can use notification mode with any type of endpoint; therefore, it is not an absolute requirement to have a custom server extension in your system. For example, it is possible to set up a notification Sync Pipe between two LDAP server endpoints.
