push and local notifications

i'm using xcode 4.1.  How do you setup and run push and local notifications?  I can't find a good tutorial on them.  I already have my provision profiles setup and certificates.  Just need to know how to code them and how to shoot them out when something is updated.

With a local notification it is just a case of instantiating a UILocalNotification and scheduling it with the scheduleLocalNotification method of UIApplication, it's very simple to do.

Push notification are generally generated in a back end service somewhere and not on the local device, such as an auction site.  Good tutorial on push can be found here http://mobile.tutsplus.com/tutorials/iphone/iphone-sdk_apns/

i seen another tutorial saying edit the Edit Active Target  but i don't know how in xcode 4.1.  It doesn't look the same so i don't know how to go about that.  I want to make my own server to push to apple's server.  Just need to know how to go about that.  I understand the local notifications now, thanks

In terms of editing your target, select the top level project object, normally your project name.  The editor space should change to have a split pane view, the left pane has project and targets in it.  Select the target and edit away...

To do what you would like to do you will need to revert to good old C code.  Have a look at this tutorial on how to setup a basic push server in C.  http://blog.toshsoft.de/index.php?/archives/3-Sending-Apple-Push-Notifications-APN-in-C-Updated-Using-CA-Cert.html
