I don't have an example of using Skype, however you can check out this example ... acugt\sample\dotnet\netdb\cobol\netdb.cbl ... this has an ActiveX definition, uses the CREATE and MODIFY

From what I've seen of the Skype APi, skype is an exe, so you would need to constuct a series of batch files that call the skype exe and use the communication protocols that Skyoe makes available. You can then use Call System or CALL C$SYSTEM to execute the batch files from COBOL.

If Skype is available as an ActiveX control, then yes axdefgen creates a copybook with the properties and methods that Skype makes available. You would include the axdefgen generated copybook in the special-names portion of your COBOL program, then use the CREATE verb to iniate Skype (essentially CALL Skype), and use the MODIFY verb to modify the methods and properties to use Skype
