I am doing a university assignment and am looking at developing an XML application for a 7940 /7960 or 7970 phone which allows teachers to enter students as being absent or present at the beginning of each class. I haven't written XML before, but I have a basic overview of how call manager and IP phones work. I'm still establishing whether this project would be too complex for me to do, or whether it's a feasible idea.
It was suggested that I can use LDAP/XML to access the active directory and write files to it for Teacher/class/student to then write back to on absent/present. This brings about a lot of other questions as to how would the data be gathered for report writing at the end of the semester, how it should then be displayed (ie: table with students & dates absent & percentage) and who would enter the data initially to build the classes. I'm also not an AD expert, so i'm not really sure how well this would work under AD, and if infact i'm going to be allowed to touch the colleges AD implementation.
Does this sound like a do-able assignment? is this even possible to do? Are there any other ways of doing this? or would this be the best way? I've been trying to research how to integrate Cisco ip phone/XML implementation with AD, but haven't found anything definitive, are there any good documents/sources available?
Also.. I can't access the http://www.aptigen.net website that a few people on the forums have mentioned, are there any other simular sorts of applications to emulate the IP phone & development?
Thanks & appreciate any feedback you can supply for me :)
Thanks for your responses, PhoneTop K-12 is quite simular to what we are planning to implement, although ours may be more basic.
I've had a little more information from my teacher now, we will have to send & pull data from their current attendance tracking system, using ODBC. We are still confirming though which database system the program is using. Then we can determine which programming language we should use to interface from XML to the database (I think that's how it works?) so maybe C or VB or java etc..
In PhoneTop K-12, they can pull information from any backend Student Information System that has an ODBC interface (and most of them do). It comes with Wizards to help you map the fields between back-end system and PhoneTop database.
As far as your project is concerned, you can develop it in Java or .NET. Both can get you what you want, choose the one you are more comfortable with. You can use ODBC/JDBC to get the data from backend student information system and then use .aspx pages (in .NET) or Servlet/JSP (in Java) to create the front end of the application for IP phones.
The short answer is that you don't.... That isn't entirely true while at
the same time it kind of is, but for the most part you don't configure
the softkeys. You enable or disable them via TCL. Here is the long
answer. Be sure to read the whole thing or e...
