About The Avaya Ace Web Services Trainer
The Avaya ACE Web Services Trainer is a developer training and demonstration tool, created by Avaya DevConnect. Its primary purpose is to teach developers about the real-time communications capabilities enabled by the Avaya ACE Web Services and to help them employ those capabilities in their own solutions. The Trainer achieves this by providing an intuitive, user-friendly Java Swing interface, with controls and other features that allow you to exercise the Web services and view the resulting SOAP requests and responses. In addition, you can learn more by inspecting The Trainer's source code and even reuse parts of it in your own solutions.
What you need to run The Trainer
To be able to run The Trainer, you need:
- Access to an Avaya ACE/Aura® configuration: You may already have access to an in-house Avaya ACE/Aura configuration, but if not you can purchase developer editions from DevConnect or use the Avaya ACE Web Services with Avaya Aura remote lab. The remote lab is available on demand and at no cost to DevConnect members for periods of three months at a time.
- At least three endpoint devices registered with Avaya Aura. These could be, for example, Avaya one-X™ deskphones, one-X Communicator softphones or instances of the Avaya one-X SIP deskphone emulator.
- The Avaya ACE Web Services Trainer, which you can download above.
