What kind of hardware are you planning to use? JTAPI is the "universal" way to do it in JAVA (basically a wrapper for the older TAPI). It's not quite that easy though. The device you use (called a "Provider" in TAPI speak) has to have a TAPI/JTAPI driver that supports the functionality you're after (what you want is the stuff that's in javax.telephony.media, JTAPI MediaService and Resource API).

Since the MediaService is an "optional" package, there is no guarantee whatsoever that a Provider will actually have this, even if they state that they have a JTAPI driver for their harware. You'll have to look closely at the hardware you're going to use to interface with the mobile network (mobile phone are whatever you're planning to use).

JTAPI sprung from the much older TAPI technology which was originally intended for call-control (ie, making your device to stuff like call out, pick up etc), not for actually accessing the media streams.

My advice is to start at the other end and figure out what hardware you're going to use. If you find one that's JTAPI MediaService aware, all the better, but you might end up having to conform to whatever API that device makes available.

By hardware, I meant what you think I meant, ie your mobile phone connected via USB.

What you need to look into is what API support your phone has. Most likely there will be some sort of application you install on your PC that comes with your phone that gives you access to the phones functionality from your PC. Like I said in my previous post, JTAPI is a very comprehensive API with functionality for pretty much anything you can imagine doing with a telephony device. Still, there is no guarantee that even if your mobile phone has a programming interface that includes JTAPI, it will actually support ALL of the JTAPI functionalities.

Dig deeper into the documentation of your mobile phone and try to figure out what programming support and interfaces there are available. Then we can figure out if and how you can access it.
