Getting Started

Oracle Communications Instant Messaging Server Release 10.0.1 is the latest version of Instant Messaging. You can upgrade from release 9.0.x or 10.0 to 10.0.x.  Oracle Communications Instant Messaging Server provides a secure, real-time communication and collaboration system, combining presence awareness with instant messaging capabilities, for communications service providers. Use Instant Messaging Server to create XMPP-based services, use client-to-client voice chat, enable mobile presence services, and access SIP/SIMPLE networks. The documentation links below all refer to this latest release unless otherwise noted.

Beginning in June 2015, UCS software is delivered as three separate products - Oracle Communications Messaging Server, Oracle Communications Calendar Server, and Oracle Communications Instant Messaging Server. Each product download enables you to download additional software that you have a right to use. For example, the Oracle Communications Messaging Server download enables you to download Oracle Communications Convergence and Oracle Communications Indexing and Search Service software.

As a result of the changes to the packaging of the software, the process for installing UCS software has changed. The commpkg install command no longer installs all UCS software. Instead, you now run commpkg install for each product you are installing. The commpkg script is bundled with each individual product.
