Q: What is the Voice Tools Project?

Q: What is OpenVXML? How does this differ from the VTP?
A: OpenVXML is the name of the primary software package produced by the contributors to Voice Tools Project. Often times these terms can seem to be used interchangeably. However, when speaking of the group of committers, contributors, or the web properties hosted at the Eclipse foundation the term Voice Tools Project or VTP should be used. When speaking of the graphical development environment or the server-side runtime component, the name OpenVXML should be used.
Q: What version of Eclipse does OpenVXML support?
A: As a project, we try to support the most current production quality Eclipse release and the one previous to it with our software. OpenVXML currently supports Eclipse 3.3.x and 3.4.x. Once the 3.5 (Galileo) version of Eclipse is released, we will phase out development against 3.3.x. This doesn't necessarily mean that the software won't run on 3.3.x, but we won't be ensuring that changes we make don't cause issues when running on that platform.
Q: What version of Java does OpenVXML support/require?
A: OpenVXML is developed against Java SE 5.0 (1.5) and requires at least that version of Java to compile and run. The software should compile and run properly under Java SE 6.0 (1.6) or using any of the corresponding EE Java releases but this is not thoroughly tested. The only major restriction is that applications created on a developer machine running 6.0 (1.6) cannot be run on a server using an earlier version.
