UDDI Services includes the Notification Service component. You can configure the Notification Service component by using the UDDI Services Configuration Wizard Custom configuration mode.


The Notification Service component requires that the Database component has been configured.


Using the UDDI Services Configuration Wizard, you can configure components using Custom mode at any time after installing UDDI Services. You can configure components using Basic mode after initially installing UDDI Services or after using Unconfigure Features in Custom mode. For more information about Basic configuration, see Configure UDDI Services Using Basic Mode. For more information about unconfiguring UDDI Services in Custom mode, see Unconfigure UDDI Services.
