[jitsi-dev] Intercomunication from Jitsti and mail client (outlook, thunderbird, ..)


#1

Hi everibody,

i use jitsi since 1 year as a developer and modify some behaviour in it, my recend needs are a more tight integration with Mail client for presence, click to dial (from outlook, thunderbird) and appointment and meeting management.

Basically i want to integrate Jisti as IM for outlook, when a person receive a mail whit a telephone number with one click i want to dial in Jitsi. ( I was trying doing a custom tcp ip client in outlook and a server as plug in of jitsi).

When a person create a meeting in Outlook and join it, i want to notify to the Jistsi application the change in presence (from online to away as example), when the meeting end notify and change status.

I have seen the Com integration in Jisti for outlook, but seem to me "one way only" and very complex.

Can you suggest me some documentation or idea to do this? even in thunderbird as exemple, i am ready to develop plugin for outlook and thunderbird

I have read some microsoft documentation ( https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj900715(v=office.15).aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396 ) but seems very diffrent from the approach taken in jisti.

Thank you for all help and link provided.

This is already implemented.

Look at the existing source code. And yes, this _is_ complex. Not just because of the convoluted COM/Java interaction, but because that API to Outlook is complex.

If you tell us what you're missing currently, we might be able to point you to the source codes to extend the existing functionality.

even in thunderbird as exemple,

Thunderbird is an entirely different thing, and I don't know what they support to start a chat or a call. I'd assume it simply works over sip: and xmpp: URIs.

That's exactly what Jitsi implements.
