Support for Skype for Asterisk
The latest nightly snapshot of Asterisk-Java now supports Skype for Asterisk manager events and actions after we’ve implemented AJ-262. Skype for Asterisk support will also be part of the upcoming 1.0.0.M4 release of Asterisk-Java.
What can I do with it?
You can now use Asterisk-Java to
Retrieve information about your buddies
Add buddies to your buddy list
Remove buddies from your buddy list
Send and receive Skype Chat messages
And of course you can originate calls to or receive calls from Skype users and use Asterisk-Java based AGI scripts to implement IVR features for Skype.
What are the prerequisites?
First you must have a Skype for Asterisk license installed on your Asterisk server. They are available from Digium’s online store for $66.00 per channel.
Then you should apply this patch to chan_skype.c to fix a few minor bugs in their Manager API implementation.
