Announce: Asterisk-Java 0.2 released

Asterisk-Java 0.2, a Java control for the Asterisk PBX, has been released.

The Asterisk-Java package consists of a set of Java classes that allow you to easily build Java applications that interact with an Asterisk PBX Server. Asterisk-Java supports both interfaces that Asterisk provides for this scenario: The FastAGI protocol and the Manager API.

The 0.2 release focuses on the new features of the Asterisk 1.2 series though it still supports Asterisk 1.0.x. Since 0.2-rc2 some minor bugs have been fixed and support for several last minute additions to Asterisk 1.2 has been added.

Asterisk-Java is used in several commercial environments and by the following Open Source projects:
* Asterisk-IM
A plugin for the Jive Messenger XMPP (jabber) server. It provides
integrated presence between your IM client and phone, notification
of incoming calls by IM and originate calls from supported IM
* Asterisk Desktop Manager (ADM)
A desktop application that will allow for automatic on-call volume
reduction, one click dial from clipboard, integrated phonebook
and more.
