I want to showcase Lync presence indication(Online, offline, away etc) in my Linux based oracle application for all my application users. The problem i'm facing is i 'm not able to fetch real time presence information of the lync users so as i can replicate the same in my application.

Google helped me get few Lync clients like SIPE and Pidgin.

I need additional info -- How can i read the presence status data from lync database so that I can add the presence status to my Linux based application.

-- How can i use Lync in Linux OS

SIPE is a Pidgin protocol plug-in designed to give Pidgin and related applications interoperability with Lync.

Probably the simplest way to enable SIPE in your own application is to integrate the Pidgin backend, called libpurple.
