VoiceGlue Up And Running

I now have VoiceGlue up and running on Ubuntu 8.10. (Actually, the Ubuntu server is running as a virtual machine under Sun’s VirtualBox 2.1.)

For those that don’t know, VoiceGlue is an open source project that links Asterisk (the open source PBX) with OpenVXI (an open source VoiceXML platform currently under the stewardship of Vocalocity). VoiceGlue makes it possible for Asterisk users to deploy a completely open source VoiceXML platform for building IVRs and other useful applications.

The VoiceGlue install on Ubuntu 8.10 went smoothly — I did run into an issue with one of the services not starting, but that was easily identified and fixed thanks to a speedy response from the VoiceGlue folks. (This issue was really my own fault — use the pgrep command to make sure you have specific services running. And when in doubt, check the logs people!)

Based on my experience with the install and my initial testing I am extremely impressed with VoiceGlue. Its well documented and there is an active community of users offering tips and troubleshooting advice.

Hats off to the people behind VoiceGlue — Doug Campbell and Steve Smith. Well done!

  1. I like VoiceGlue a lot! I was one of the very first people to try it and I can’t tell you how much the people over there impress me, especially Doug Campbell.
