Hi,

I found an interesting thread about skype integration in ecf dating back
to april.

Just to be curious:
What is the current state of that? Has there been any implementation to
build on?
Are there any other VOIP efforts going on?

I am looking for a way to integrate some combination of VOIP chat and
file transfer into my pet project. I guess ECF is the right way to go,
but are there any implementations / examples to build on?

Thanks,
Lorenz

Hi Lorenz,

Although this is definately on the plate, we haven't yet got
implementations and finished APIs in place.

Here's the plan for VOIP:

1) Define an ECF 'call API' plugin. This would be a client APIs that
would define a cross-implementation notion of a 'call' (including
handling of call lifecycle, access to call control, etc
2) Implement a provider with either skype or some implementation of
SIP(ideally both in parallel, but we need more
contributions/contributors to do this)
3) Implement simple softphone UI (with SWT and/or swing) that talks to
API from 1, and uses implementation(s) from 2...via the ECF
extensibility (adapters).

Conceptually, at least these three threads could proceed in parallel,
but we currently don't have enough people/time to do this. So I've been
working on 1, but don't have API defined yet. We could really benefit
by having people who would be interest in contributing to any of these
three threads (with third party code, their own code, or whatever makes
sense).

The point of 1 and 2 would be to allow for versions of 3 (client app
UIs) that would use various providers (SIP, skype, asterisk, other).

So one question I would ask...are there folks out there who would be
willing to contribute to one or several of the 3 threads listed above?
If so, please contact me directly at slewis@composent.com.

Thanks,

Scott
