|WebSphere VoiceServer is not on top of the whole WebSphere System. It is an independant browser-module as http-browser type interface for web-like voice access.|
Most suppliers offering voice-engines aim at the phone; WebSphere VoiceServer is inherently device independant, platform independant. Based on VoiceXML.
IDE: free VoiceServer SDK
Interface development is completely different from GUI-development, eg.: never more than 4 prompt-options
Eclipse: WebSphere development tooling architecture ("Visual Age for Java replacement"); web flavored toolkit
