The Notification Service allows for session notifications to be sent to web containers that are running the Access Manager SDK remotely. The notifications apply to the Session, Policy and Naming Services only. In addition, the remote application must be running in a web container. The purpose of the notifications would be:
To sync up the client side cache of the respective services.
To enable more real time updates on the clients. (Polling is used in absence of notifications.)
No client application changes are required to support notifications.
Note that the notifications can be received only if the remote SDK is installed on a web container.
