Developing an IMS client on Android : Request for comments.

 Hello everyone,

I am new to Android, just joined this group. I have been going through
the documentation for Android, got the plugin for eclipse and tried
some sample apps. Having gone through Android's architectural
framework..

I would now want to invite a discussion/views/ comments of the Android
user community on developing a 4G IMS client on the Android framework.
I believe that the IMS telco industry is missing this component badly,
and in my view Android is an ideal platform for such a client. I have
development experience on the IMS server side nodes, but an IMS client
for handsets is a crucial link that is being missed today. Some IMS
client vendors that are present have 'siloed' IMS client solutions,
which have major interworking issues. I believe that such client
software can be developed in open source.

So, if anyone has any views on this subject, please feel free to
brainstorm with me here.

Thanks
Aayush

Probably. :-)  I had to go look it up just to find out what 'IMS'
means< http://www.lightreading.com/document.asp?doc_id=70728> ;.


Sounds interesting.  Go for it.


I don't think this is really the forum for that kind of discussion.  IF you
have any Android-realted question on implementing IMS, we'll be happy to
help.

Developing an IMS client on Android : Request for Comments.

This group is for questions-and-answers for new developers of
applications on the Android platform, using the Java-based SDK.

General discussion should be posted on [android-discuss].

Questions regarding modifying the Android platform -- and, from what I
can see, a "4G IMS client" might be a firmware project -- should go to
one of the mailing lists related to the Android platform:

 Thanks Faber,Mark for the replies.
I will explore those mailing lists.

But, just for the record, there are no changes required to the Android
SDK as such to support IMS. As a matter of fact, one popular sip stack
works perfectly on Android, with zero porting effort. The IMS client
will be like any other android application that builds upon the stack.

Warm Regards
Aayush

 Sounds interesting to me but I have no knowledge of IMS. Feel free to let me
know of line if you need any help or if the project goes ahead.

 Hi,

I was wondering what SIP stack are you planning to use? Please mail me
a link. Even I am working on a similar think, but I've restriced
myself to Voice transfer initially.

 Hi,
I heard that Inexbee( http://www.inexbee.com ) is currently porting
Mercuro IMS Client( http://www.mercuro.net ) for android.
I think that Jain sip is a good choice. You can also look at IMS
Communicator or SIP Communicator, both are based on JAIN SIP.

 Thanks ! It seems that a lot of vendors seem to be experimenting with
Android.
BTW Alice, where did you get that  news regarding Mercuro ?

 We are using Mercuro for our IMS platform and we are working closely
with Inexbee.

 i Rob,

Porting an IMS client on Android provides a value proposition to the
service providers to develop convergent telco and web applications. By
leveraging google apps through the android platform and coupling them
with SIP enabled applications, the dream of creating commercially
successful mashups for the mass telecom market will be realized.
Imagine such applications reaching millions of people worldwide,
leveraging upon IMS as a common access independent core.

Moreover, IMS will bring with itself its native capabilities of access
independence(we can plug in WiMax,LTE,HSPA and interwork with existing
GSM networks), a unified user profile maintainance repository in the
form of the HSS, and a unified charging and billing capability(over
DIAMETER) to the network operator.

As far as support for IMS clients by the operator is concerned, the
interface is well defined and standardized.

For the mobile carrier, the choice of providing newer, richer and
intutive applications will open new revenue generating streams for the
operator.

just my 2 cents..

Other Threads

1. Long Press Search BUtton

I have an application that contains a receiver with the following
intent filters:

<intent-filter android:priority="99999999">
  <action android:name="android.intent.action.CAMERA_BUTTON" />
  <action android:name="android.intent.action.SEARCH_LONG_PRESS" />
</intent-filter>

For devices that have a camera button everything works fine.  However,
for devices that don't have a camera button, I decided to use a long-
press of the search button.

One of the users has reported that this is not working and that
pressing the search button does not launch my app... it only launches
the speech recorder, as it did before my app was installed.  There is
a setting that turns this feature on and off, but I have verified that
it is indeed on.

Am I missing something here?  What else do I need to do to get my app
to launch when the search button is pressed?

Thanks,
Justin

2. Users have trouble upgrading my app in Android Market - anyone else?

I've had more than one user say they have trouble when they "upgrade"
new versions of my app in Android Market. One woman says it takes her
several "days" to successfully do it (I presume that means multiple
attempts spread out over time).

Can this be on my end? I upgrade my database on each rev - basically I
retreive the user data and stick it in the new database that ships
with my app. But I think the complaint is about something different.

Has anyone else received comments about anything similar? I am
concerned people uninstall my app just because of this issue,.

Thanks!
