Sample name: InstantMessagingCall

Sample location: %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2\UCMA SDK 2.0\UCMACore\Sample Applications\Collaboration\QuickStarts\InstantMessagingCall


The application initializes the platform to start listening on behalf of a user, places an instant message call with the conversation details fully set, and sends instant messages to the caller until the caller replies with Shutdownor closes the window.

The application echoes all messages sent to it back to the source until the application exits. Additionally, it sends and processes Instant Message Delivery Notification (IMDN) data for each message received or sent. When the shutdown message is received or the instant message window is closed, the application prints log results to the console, and then exits, performing normal platform shutdown.
