To some extent I agree, I am not sure it is most beneficial to embedd this logic directly in SER. -jiri

Because all of us folks need sometimes to connect to billing systems, ERPs, Web portals and so on. And some of us already do it with Web services, but they just don't have time to speak about it ;-)

>a) I think that we should at LEAST introduce SOAP for accounting. In emails sometime ago I proposed to build into SER a set of Web Services compliant to IPDR standard. Then we could at least facilitate simple requests for list of calls per user/domain/group, together with relevant call times. I have nothing against other billing information exchange standards of course, but I still think that IPDR is sexy.
>b) Next we could build something around dialog module. Web methods to report ongoing calls, to terminate a call, to insert voice prompt into an ongoing call.. Options are endless here.

>e) ParlayX Web Services v.2.0 - for building all of those sexy call services and advanced call routing, reaching further that current dialog module capabilities
>What is more, having SOAP (and Web Services in general) in mind, the next generation Web interface is just around the corner. SER with built-in Web Services, together with nice interface build in PHP/XSLT, OpenLaszlo or whatever-is-the-sexiest-now Web technology, could easily complement or even compete with Asterisk.
