    UCMA 2.0 - Part 1.1 - High level architecture and design of UCMA

    • 1 Comments
    Let’s be honest, UCMA 1.0, while very useful, was a bit lame. The frustrating thing about it was it opened up many new possibilities, but didn’t give you the chance to take advantage of them. You could send messages to another party, but could not determine...

    UCMA 2.0 - Part 1.4 Signing in and signing out

    • 1 Comments
    It’s about time that we began writing some code and getting into the details of the API. To start out, I will cover the signaling part of UCMA. Those of you who read my previous blog series on UCMA will find the next several posts very familiar. For...

    UCMA 2.0 - Part 1.6 Introduction to SDP

    • 1 Comments
    We are almost at the point where our Powershell commandlet will be useful, but first we need to learn about establishing the session protocol. You see, SIP stands for “Session Initiation Protocol”. The key here is the word “Initiation”. Yup, SIP just...

    UCMA 2.0 - Part 1.5 Setting up a session

    In our next iteration, we will add to our commandlet to create a signaling session. In essence we will send an INVITE to the other party so that we can send a message later. There are a number of steps involved in setting up a session but for now we will...

    UCMA 2.0 - Part 1.2 - Asynchronous pattern and threading model

    • 1 Comments
    Before you really start coding in UCMA 2.0, or even UCMA 1.0, it is extremely important that you understand the asynchronous pattern. UCMA is designed for server applications, meaning it supports many operations occurring at the same time. In order to...

    UCMA 2.0 - Part 1.3 Powershell and UCMA

    • 0 Comments
    Today, we will get started with coding UCMA applications. First though, I would like to cover again the Signaling namespace exposed by UCMA. While much of this is not necessary when using the new Collaboration namespace, I feel that it is still important...

    Ready for some new UCMA blogs?

    • 1 Comments
    At long last this blog is back up and running. Very soon (current goal is Wednesday), I will start a new series of UCMA blogs covering the new 2.0 API. My goal is to eventually cover all parts of this now huge set of APIs, but unlike my previous set of...

    The "new" blog

    • 1 Comments
    In truth, this is now a new blog. I'm not sure what we will be covering in the next several months, short of the already stated UCMA 2.0 APIs. However, there are some sharp differences between this blog and my old one. First, it already has a new look...
