SIP protocol & Provider Implementation for ECF under Eclipse Public License

This page contains the project proposal created by [Harshana Martin] for the GSoC idea taken from [GSoC 2009 Ideas list]. Comments from the viewers are welcome.


Eclipse Communication Framework supports several messaging protocols at the moment, including Yahoo, MSN and XMPP, which are plugged in as providers. However, the current Yahoo provider is based on a third party Yahoo protocol implementation (jYMSG) which is distributed under GNU GPL. This is problematic for the ECF due to the incompatibility between licenses - EPL and GPL. This project aims to implement the Yahoo protocol and a provider under EPL.
