We have a customer that would like to implement a service that would allow them to query a database and retrieve the name of the caller from the ani. I would think this would be pretty simple to do but I can't seem to get started and didn't know if anyone has any suggestions...This would be a small database, less 500 entries.

Thanks in advance.

Do you want this lookup to be done manually?

i.e. press Services, press "ANI Lookup", then enter the number and receive the name matching to the number?

This is quite easy to do, have a look at the ipphone services sdk for the objects like CiscoIPPhoneInput.

You can use any language for the webservice, use what you are most comfortable with. I always use JSP/Servlets...

you're lucky as your question has been answered on the developers forum:

The TCL script posted by Paolo Bevilacqua seems to do exactly what you describe. I Have not tested it yet, but it seems promissing.
