Advanced SDK Topic: Ensuring Resilience with Plantronics COM API


Author: Lewis Collins, Plantronics

When using the Plantronics COM API how do you ensure the connection to the Plantronics Hub software is working?
  • What if the user accidentally shuts down Plantronics Hub (or it crashes), or user upgrades it which would also result in it shutting down and starting again. Would your software re-connect to the COM API automatically?
  • What if Plantronics Hub is not installed, will your software still attempt to connect to it, resulting in long COM timeout? (Will this timeout impact your applications performance)?
