EmailServlet

This is the start Servlet for the EmailToPhone application. When invoked the first time for a call, it dynamically generates a VXML file based on the email account. Voicent Gateway knows to call this Servlet because it is defined in the protectedappurl parameter of the EmailToPhone application conf file.

    EmailManager email_agent = EmailManager.getInstance(request);

    ... 
    if (email_agent.startSession())
        ok = email_agent.download(false);
    ...

    PrintWriter pw = response.getWriter();

    pw.println("<?xml version=\"1.0\"?>");
    pw.println("<vxml version=\"1.0\">");
    pw.println("<form id=\"email\">");
    ...
    pw.println("</vxml>");
  } 
By Voicent Gateway convention, this same method is invoked when the phone session ends. This invocation is identified by the parameter vxstate=end.
    String vxstate = request.getParameter("vxstate"); 
    if ("end".equals(vxstate)) {
        if (email_agent != null)   
            email_agent.endSession();
        return;
    }

Notice that in the path for certain audio file, there is a variable ${GW_RECORDED_VOICE}. This is a parameter corresponds to the selected male or female voice for pre-recorded audio files of Voicent Gateway. Voicent Gateway supports parameterized VXML files. These parameters are instantiated before using for the phone interaction. For more details, please refer to the Voicent Gateway reference manual online.
