Notification from SQL Server to my App

Hello,

I've been using timers to check some object status from a database (SQL Server 2008 Express). It was all ok, until the data retrieved was big enought that the timers routine to check got inefficient.

I read something about SQLDependency, which triggers an event when a table is changed and notifies my app. That seems to be great, since i have to treat the data only when I really have to...

The problem is I'm kind of a rookie in database structuring and the examples I found were rather complex for me...

Could someone post here a very simple example that i can understand how to use this? Or if there is a better way that would be welcome too.

Thanks in advance.

Just one last question: If i want to drop a database that has these services it says it's in use. How can i delete them so I can drop it?

I never tried. but you should be able to use SP_Kill to kill any session (use SP_who2 to find out the sessions).

I figured this out... It wasn't the Service Broker that was using the database, i had to set it offline.

alter database [DemoNotifications2]
set OFFLINE
with rollback immediate
go
drop database [DemoNotifications2]
go

Thanks anyway :)
