TechCrunch UK: The Communication Platform Wars

Sam Sethi, writing in this morning’s TechCrunch UK, thinks that the biggest impact of Skype 3.0 is under the hood — the new Java and COM APIs.  All signs certainly seem to be pointing that way, as major features like the new Call Transfer, are only exposed as APIs at this point.  One of our developers grabbed the Skype Java libraries earlier this week, and so far has been very impressed with them.

It’s this kind of initiative that will accelerate the adoption of Skype by developers.  Until now, Skype’s clunky COM architecture has been a headache for any firm seriously considering it as a platform.  This is a welcome move forward.
