I want to develop IVR Outbound (OBD Engine) where i need to make call to given user.
I have read about Call File in asterisk and implemented a test call using call file.
The problem is that i have doubt on call file functionality becoz same functionality can be done
using cron job where i can pick call id from database and using Originate command i can achieve same
functionality that can achieve using call file. Plus i need to do DB operation i.e. on successfull call completion
update database with proper status of the user.
Can anyone point out pros and cons of call file and which option is better cron job or call file.
Your help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance
