Hi all.

I want to integrate Skype based presence / chat / voice chat into my RCP app.
I'm having some difficulty pulling together all the different bits of
documentation and trawling through the many ECF plugins to find out how it all
works. I need some help.

For the first part, I'd be happy to integrate something like the
MultiRosterView into my app, showing my list of buddies. I don't want to
launch it from the 'Connect to Provider' button that you get from the usual
ECF plugin install - I simply want the view to be there pre-configured to use
Skype.

I currently have the view in place in my perspective. Can anyone either direct
me to an example which does this kind of thing or tell me, as an utter ECF
newbie, how to configure the view. I'm guessing that it's something to do with
the addContainer() method on the view, but how do I get an appropriately
configured IContainer. Almost certainly by using one of the
ContainerFactory.getDefault().createContainer() methods, but what is the
'name' (specifically for Skype), etc. How do I configure the ContainerFactory
so that it knows to give me the appropriate kind of IContainer for my needs,
etc.

If you can do this without using a single ellipsis at critical points, I would
be eternally grateful.

Regards,

Lance Walton

ContainerFactory.getDefault().createContainer("ecf.call.skype ");

The name is from the org.eclipse.ecf.provider.skype plug-in's plugin.xml
file.

Assuming the plug-in is there to be loaded / can be read by the extension
registry, things should be fine.

Many thanks for the reply - this get's me a bit further. However, when I do
this, my app just hangs at the above line. More precisely, that call
eventually results in a call to WindowsConnector.connect(int) and at line 311
we have:

OS.SendMessage(HWND_BROADCAST, DISCOVER_MESSAGE_ID, windowHandle, 0);

which is where the hanging really seems to happen. I believe the plugin is
trying to get hold of the username from Skype (I do have Skype running
locally).

Any ideas?

Regards,

Lance

What version of skype? And what version of window?

We have not seen any of such problems in testing 3.5.0.239 (at least) on
windows XP.

Windows XP Version 2002, Service Pack 2
I did have Skype version 3.2.0.175, but I've now upgraded to 3.5.0.239 and
have the same problem

I don't see this problem when I use the 'Connect to Provider' button (that
appears in my IDE as a result of installing the plugins) and select Skype.
That seems to connect fine. So I guess it's not a problem with my Windows or
Skype version.

I realise that it's difficult to work this out with so little information. If
nothing comes to mind, I'll build a little app that only contains the ECF
stuff that I'm trying to do and send it to you, if you think that'll help.

Regards,

Lance

Hmmm. Very strange.

Yes, that would be great. Would it be possible for you to open a bug
for this?

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/enter_bug.cgi?product=ECF

Then you could attach a zip of the project to that bug. If you aren't
comfortable doing that then please send to slewis@composent.com directly.

Thanks!

Scott

Done: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=207872

The project I've attached to the report doesn't hang - instead an exception is
thrown but maybe it'll help point to the problem.

Regards,

Lance
