client notification on dyamic map service updates

Discussion created by aafgilbert01 on Feb 8, 2013

I have a local map service than is currently used by an ArcGis Runtime application. I was wondering what is the work flow when I want to update the map package. Can I simply overwrite the map package and then the user need to close and reopen my application. A more suitable solution would be that the user stop and restart the map service. How the user can be notified that the map service that he is looking at has been updated.

I am also wondering how this map service update also works when the map service is published through ArcGis 10.1 for Server.
