Every once in awhile (though somewhat more commonly now) I receive an e-mail or IM asking a question on the UCMA API. I decided to post the answers to some of the most common questions.
Where can I download UCMA? – The release candidate is at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=b30306e4-7dc1-44d2-9a68-9b4a6fc5c2df&DisplayLang=en
I cannot find any documentation for UCMA? – There is a limited .chm file that ships with it. I have heard that this will be improved significantly in the future, but for now you can use my 16 part blog series beginning with this post.
I set the certificate of the connection manager, but it can’t find it on my machine? – The certificate must be stored on the local machine. A file based certificate will not do. It should also have the FQDN of the host.
I send a message from Communicator to my bot and it is rejected. What happened? – The answer is tricky and is best covered in this blog post.
Instead of accepting an INVITE, I want to redirect it to another machine. How can I do that? – Use TerminateWithRedirection on the SignalingSession.
