Until recent times Instant Messenger functionality has been limited to PC and desktops only. By utilising the capabilities of the AGP and Instant Messenger applications we can now provide a significant amount of functionality on the OptiPoint Series phones via the DSM or APM. Instant messenger requires all the users to get connected to common web server with Instant Messaging Application on it. Whenever a person logins he is added into the contact list maintained by web server and is visible to others.



Operational Overview:

  • Client 1 writes a message on the Instant Messenger application running on the phone’s AGP
  • When the send button is pressed, the message, along with other parameters including username of message recipient, forms part of a HTTP request and is sent to the servlet running on the server
  • The servlet processes the request and stores the recipient’s username along with the message
  • During processing the servlet constructs an XML page containing the message and sends a push request to Client 2 telling it that a message awaits collection.
  • Client 2 then contacts the servlet in order to receive the message in XML form.
  • The XML page received replaces the page currently showing on the DSM/APM to display the message

Key Features

  • Send Message

User can send a message to contact that has logged in to the web server.

  • Receive Message

User can receive message from anyone who is connected to web server through this application.

  • Create Workgroup

User can create a workgroup of number of contacts .Workgroup is visible once everyone logs on to the server and the user can send same message to all the contacts simultaneously.
