The SIP Servlet Tutorial

SIP Servlets and Java EE Components

This section describes how SIP servlets can integrate with other Java EE components in a converged application. A converged application has one or more SIP servlets and one or more Java EE components, such as HTTP servlets, JavaServer Faces applications, enterprise beans, or web services.

Converged applications allow you to integrate SIP functionality into Java EE applications and frameworks. For example, a web application that acts as a front-end to an employee contact information database could be enhanced by allowing users to make a Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) call to the employee for whom the user is searching. Or, an application could route incoming calls to employees based on their schedule in a calendar server.
