New and Changed Information

The following sections describe new features and changes that are pertinent to the Cisco Unified Application Environment:

Language and Integrated Development Environment Flexibility

With this release, the Cisco Unified Application Environment provides a new set of powerful development tools and provides expanded access to APIs:

Popular languages (Java, C#) for writing to Unified Communications APIs can now be used.

APIs, which were previously only accessible from inside the Cisco Unified Application Server, can be accessed by developers over the network using new Etch technology.

Network connection over the Etch Bridge supports Transport Layer Security (TLS).

Enhanced Developer Experience

These enhancements to the developer experience have been made:

Because language and network barriers have been removed, developers can now use their IDE and application container of choice for Cisco Unified Application Environment development.

Cisco Unified Application Environment APIs are now documented in Javadoc and C#, and are installed to the developer machine with the Developer Tools installer.

A new developer community includes extensive example applications, API references, and forums: http://developer.cisco.com/web/cuae/home

New Messaging Plugin

Developers can download a new plugin to build applications that interact with Cisco Unity and Cisco Unity Connection, Release 7.0. The Messaging API supports the reading and sending of voicemail. To download the new plugin and associated documentation, go to http://developer.cisco.com/web/cuae/downloads.

Enhanced Administration Experience

These enhancements to the administrator experience have been made:

The Cisco Unified Application Environment Administration interface was updated to improve usability and provide administrators with a more consistent look and feel across Cisco Unified Communications products

New Etch-based Management API allows programmatic control of Cisco Unified Application Environment Administration functions

Integration with Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Cisco Unified Application Environment, Release 2.5.1 is integrated with Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Release 7.0, and continues support for Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Releases 6.0 and 6.1, and Cisco Unified CallManager, Releases 4.x and 5.x.
