Microsoft encourages Live Communicatiions integration

Tash Shifrin

Microsoft has introduced controls and sample code to encourage developers to integrate its Live Communications Server into custom-built applications.

The move will allow partners, independent software vendors and customers to incorporate the Live Communication’s real-time communications function into productivity and line-of-business applications.

Presence Controls for Office Communicator will allow developers to insert presence icons into applications to show users whether key colleagues or contacts  are available, while Role Agent for Live Communications Server offers a sample of instant messaging for groups of people defined by a shared business role.

Zig Serafin, general manager of Microsoft’s real-time collaboration group, said: “We want to provide partners and ISVs with the tools they need to add real-time communication features into applications, making it possible for information workers to launch real-time collaboration sessions from within the tasks in which they are currently working.”

Presence Controls and Role Agent samples are available for download, while a Customer Alerting Application sample will be made available shortly.
