The Java Telephony API was developed by Sun and Lucent Technologies along with Intel, Northern Telecom and Novell. The interface will allow developers to reuse 'telephone call control objects' to achieve such things as automated voice response over the Internet, or place Java app-lets in telephone handsets.
