Java ME and Java EE: Group Hug with SIP
By dannycoward on Nov 13, 2008
Today, just the latest report of many on the rise of Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) as the leading standard for bringing people together online in chat sessions, video and voice conferences and even multiplayer gaming. And for those who are holding out, there are plenty of other people filling in the gaps.
Happily for Java developers, you are well supported. With the SIP API for Java ME, now part of the MSA platform, supported in the WTK, and in NetBeans for developing a SIP client.
And those of you who wish to extend or customize the basic functionality of the SIP server which brings lone users seeking a group session of some kind together, just yesterday Sailfin reached another milestone. This GlassFish based SIP server, which uses good old Java servlets as the basis for its programming model, now officially implements the very latest SIP Servlet API.
