Unity Message Waiting Indicator (MWI)

Unanswered Question
Aug 29th, 2007


I would like to develop a simple application that listens for message waiting events coming from a Cisco Unity server. My quesitons are as follows:

- Can I do this in JTAPI, or do I need TAPI? Would I need Cisco's JTAPI implementation?

- Are there any resources or code samples that you can show me that would put me in the right direction to achieve this?


I have this problem too.

An MWI is a lamp, flashing LCD panel, or special dial tone on subscriber phones that lets subscribers know a voice message is waiting. The type of indicator depends on the phone system and the phones that subscribers use.

MWIs are not the same as message notification, which is the feature that notifies a subscriber of new voice messages by calling a phone or pager, or by sending an e-mail message.
