TransferHTTP Browser Extension
- It integrates SIP into a web browser to make a browser two-endpoint (SIP and HTTP) user agent.
- It uses the SIP MESSAGE method to transfer stateless and stateful web sessions between browsers.
- In addition, it could use the SIP INVITE method to set-up multimedia communication (audio call and streaming services) between browsers.
- The project’s source code is available at the Mozilla repository: http://transferhttp.mozdev.org
Converged Application Server (CAS)
- It is a SIP proxy server with two endpoints (HTTP and SIP) that co-ordinates interactions between two or more browsers.
- The HTTP endpoint provides a GUI to track all interactions, and the SIP endpoint is used to manage/control the interactions, such as forwarding and blocking stateful and stateless session transfers.
- The project’s source code is available at the Berlios repository: http://transferhttp.berlios.de
