Developing applications to run on a telecommunications network has never been easier. Instead of yesterday's proprietary protocols and interfaces, you now can use open, Internet-based standards such as the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). Combined with the power and simplicity of Java technology in the form of the SIP Servlet API, an application developer can create and deploy new services to users in a fraction of the time it previously took. Taking advantage of this revolution means being conversant with SIP. In this article, you'll discover how SIP operates and, building on that knowledge, you will learn how to use the Java SIP Servlet API to build the exciting new applications of the future. The SIP tour concludes with code examples that demonstrate SIP application development in action.
