Welcome to the Cisco Networking Professionals Ask the Expert conversation. This is an opportunity to discuss with Cisco expert Seth Call how the new Cisco Unified Application Environment can bring powerful IP telephony capabilities to all developers. Seth is a manager of software development in the development team for the Cisco Unified Application Environment. He focuses on customer-related aspects of the CUAE, such as documentation, developer training, developer support, and product support.

This is the wrong forum for that type of question.
Maybe you would want to try the VPN forums?
I really don't know what Cisco Unified Application environment is. Can you just give me a quick overview?
The CUAE is a development platform for the creation, deployment, management, and execution of VOIP applications.
Specifically, the Cisco Unified Application Designer (CUAD), is a visual programming tool which gives developers a way to quickly harness Cisco CallManager-related APIs and capabilities, such as SIP, H.323, SCCP, CTI, AXL, and Extension Mobility. You can also incorporate into your application standard backend datastores, using LDAP, SQL, and Web Services.
As it relates to the folks who frequent this forum, the purpose of the CUAE is to take away all of the complexity and mystery associated with these APIs, so that developers can rapidly build powerful applications without having to be experts in a particular VOIP protocol. (Anyone who's had to write JTAPI or use AXL-SOAP should be happy to hear that!)
Our goal with the product is to make it truly the only tool one would need to build any sort of VOIP application in the CallManager environment. To make this a reality, our platform has to (and does) support all the protocols mentioned above, and also supports all sorts of media streaming-related features. It's straightforward to conference, transcode, text-to-speech, play wav files, speech rec, and record the media streams of calls made or received by the CUAE.
Also built into the platform is the ability to extend the core feature set by our extension system. One uses .NET today to expose entirely new features into the Application Designer, so that they can be used in your applications.
One of our highest priorities before our next release (May 31) is to provide substantial, comprehensive documentation for developers interested in using the platform. It is our goal to make our software as free and easily obtainable as possible for development purposes.
On that note, our next release will allow you to freely download the CUAE in it's entirety (for development purposes, of course!) Clearly, having good documentation is key to making developers such as yourselves successful if and when you decide to try your hand at the platform... today though, publicly available documentation is lacking.

Where can I get CUAE? I logged in to the link listed in this thread and couldn't find a download for CUAE. I have access to downlaod about everything from Cisco's web site except CUAE and I have asked about a dozen people and no one knows where to get it. Good job Cisco.
you need to buy the CUAS
And you should be able do download the CUAD for free
(when Cisco fixes their broken links)
Broken links, no pricing information, no evaluation copy, no screenshots, etc. This is not 1.0, but a 2.4 product but it seems like a web site for an open source 0.5 product.
The criticism here is well-founded. I won't make excuses or add explanation for the lack of availability of the CUAE. I'll attempt to clarify how things are today, and how they will change in 2.4. (we are currently at 2.3.1).
The designer itself can be downloaded if you have a Developer Support contract. If so, you should be able to navigate to the designer using the procedural information available at the end of this post.
We want this to be easier than that, however. When the 2.4 release ships (at the end of May), you will be able to freely download not only the Application Designer, but also the Application Server and Media Engine server components, so that you can quickly deploy your CUAE development environment.
The server-side components will auto-license themselves to a small amount, but sufficient enough such that you will be able to immediately build applications with the CUAE to prove or disprove the platform for yourself.
The 2.4 release also marks the release in which documentation first becomes publically available, and also when we will make available a CCM 6.0 VMWare image at a low cost. (building CUAE applications without a CallManager does not typically make sense, so this effort is an attempt to to make setting up the entire voice infrastructure easier).
We want you, the developer, to be able to quickly download, install, configure, and self-educate on the CUAE environment. There are holes that make us miss this goal today, but we are doing all that we can to make it a reality by 2.4.
Please, feel free to post any questions or comments regarding this matter.
How to get the Designer today:
2) Click Getting Started
3) Access the Developer Supported Products
4) Log in Now!
5) Choose Cisco Unified Application Environment from the dropdown.
6) Download the 2.3.1 Cisco Unified Application Designer.
7) The documentation issue remains: however, you can find two basic primer guides on this site as well. The documentation needed for the CUAE does of course extend well beyond this and we fully intend to remedy this as soon as possible.
Finally, I am able to figure out where CUAE is posted on Cisco's web site. After clicking on about a dozen pages, some how I got to CUAE 2.3.1 download page.
In this thread, Seth from Cisco mentioned that 2.4 will have VMWare image of CCM 6. Can we get VMWare for CCM 5 and CCM 4.x? So that we can start "playing" with CUAE 2.3.1 instead of waiting until May -- that is if its released in time :)
hi, i am new to Cisco. Is any callback service available in CUAE or other Cisco system?
We are using SM 2000, which does have callback server as a module. Is the Cisco having the similar module or system? if yes, please let me know the name of system as well as the requirement for it.
Thanks in advance.
I'm not sure exactly what you mean by callback service--can you describe how this feature behaves from an end-user's perspective or provide a link to a description of the service you are referring to?
please visit http://www.sysmaster.com/solutions/call_back.php to read details.
Could any Cisco system provide the similar service?
