JTAPI Feature Additions
This section briefly describes the new JTAPI feature additions for this release of the Cisco Unified Application Environment. For complete information, see the API Reference User Guide at the following URL: http://www.cisco.com/web/developer/cuae/content/docs.html.
•JTapiStartMonitoring—Used to start monitoring an active call on the specified destination. The mixed RTP stream of the call will be sent to the listener device, which can be a CTI port or a phone.
•JTapiSendXSIData—Used to send XSI data to the monitored phone using JTapi. This action can be used to send text, soft menus, and other IP phone-supported XML schemes to be displayed on the IP Phone.
•JTapiNonTriggeringSubscribe—Used to register a device dynamically from the application. This feature eliminates the need for the user to configure the device from the management console.
•JTapiUnsubscribe—Used to dynamically unregister a device. This is the counterpart of the JTapiNonTriggeringSubscribe, and enables the application to change the set of monitored devices at runtime without requiring manual configuration changes from the management console.
•JTapiHold—Used to put an active call on Hold on a monitored device.
•JTapiResume—Used to resume a held call on a monitored device.
•JTapiGetCallForwardStatus—Third party JTAPI action that can be used to get the call forward status of a monitored phone using JTAPI.
