Understanding Notification Classes

The Notification classes are used for ad-hoc notification. These classes enable you to create and send a notification to someone. The notifications can either be a Peoplesoft Worklist item or an SMTP email message. The Notification class also stores notifications in a table.

You can also use web services to create Worklist entries, then send notifications of completion using application messages.

The Notification classes can be called from a component, an internet script, or an Application Engine program. The WSWorklistEntry class can be used incase you are developing your own PT_WORKLIST notification handler. .

Most of the classes, as well as most of the properties and methods that make up the Notification classes have a GUI representation in Peoplesoft Workflow. This document assumes that the reader is familiar with PeopleSoft Workflow.
