This information applies to

  • any innovaphone PBX platform
  • Java Runtime Environment

innovaphone PBX web services can be used from Java Runtime Environment. Here is how

More Information


Modify the global variables SOAPENDPOINTURL, ADMSOAPUSER, ADMSOAPUSERPWD, SOAPUSER and CNUSER according to your specific system.

Running Sample Code

This code is a simple Java console application. It will run on your OS console terminal. As dependencies, you will need JDK to compile the code and JRE to execute it.

To compile, save the code on file and provide that file as parameter to javac command.

  • The below code was compiled on javac version 1.8.0 and run on java version 1.8.0 (It was not tested on other versions)
  • You may get a warning regarding the function sun.misc.BASE64Encoder().encode() because it is deprecated. Nevertheless the code will run. You may remove that section of the code (used just for authentication on the PBX) but you will have to allow "public" access to /PBX0/user.soap on HTTP(security risk!!!).

The sample application

This section will discuss the sample code. It is not a decent description of the PBX SOAP API. For this, see the related articles.
