Are there different versions of the RightFax API?

Periodically, the RightFax COM API (preferred API) is updated to provide enhancements and bug fixes. These updates come in the form of RightFax Feature Packs and Service Releases. Typically, a development workstation will have the RightFax Client (like FaxUtil) installed on the development workstation, so it is imperative that the development workstation have the same series of Feature Packs and Service Releases as the RightFax server you are developing your application for.

The RightFax Win32 API is updated to provide enhancements and bug fixes. These updates come in the form of RightFax Feature Packs and Service Releases. Typically, a development workstation will have the RightFax Client (like FaxUtil) installed on the development workstation, so it is imperative that the development workstation have the same series of Feature Packs and Service Releases as the RightFax server you are developing your application for.

The Java and XML API can be updated when the Integration module is updated. These updates come in from the RightFax Feature Packs and Service Releases.

The RightFax embedded codes are rarely updated but will come in the form of RightFax Feature Packs and Service Releases.

What are the key things I should be aware of when integrating with RightFax?

When developing an application for RightFax using the RightFax COM API (preferred API), there are a few things to initially consider:

  1. Ensure that the development workstation has the same series of Feature Packs and Service Releases as the RightFax server you are developing your application for. Failure to do so may result in errors when integrating with RightFax.
  2. Some RightFax COM API methods require an account with the RightFax Administrator permission enabled. This is a security feature to prevent malicious access to the RightFax server.

When developing an application for RightFax using the RightFax Win32 API, there are a few things to initially consider:

  1. Ensure that the development workstation has the same series of Feature Packs and Service Releases as the RightFax server you are developing your application for. Failure to do so may result in errors when integrating with RightFax.
  2. Possible changes may require new library files that may be requested from the Developer Program.

When developing an application for RightFax using the RightFax XML and Java API, there are a few things to initially consider

  1. This requires that the RightFax server has been configured to use the XML and Java API, which are optional. These require the integration module is installed.
  2. For Java, ensure that the development workstation has the same series of library files as the RightFax server you are developing your application for. Failure to do so may result in errors when integrating with RightFax.

When developing an application for RightFax embedded codes, there are a few things to initially consider:

  1. Ensure that the development workstation has the same series of Feature Packs and Service Releases as the RightFax server you are developing your application for. Failure to do so may result in errors when integrating with RightFax.
