Use SIP to provide multimedia and interactive services

Follow these procedures for creating SIP applications and configuring the SIP container.

SIP is used to establish, modify, and terminate multimedia IP sessions including IP telephony, presence, and instant messaging. A SIP application in WebSphere is a Java program that uses at least one SIP servlet. A SIP servlet is a Java-based application component that is managed by a SIP servlet container.

The servlet container is a part of an application server that provides the network services over which requests and responses are received and sent. The servlet container decides which applications to invoke and in what order. A servlet container also contains and manages a servlet through its lifecycle.

SIP servlet containers can employ SIP proxy servers as surrogates to handle load balancing and security issues. For more information about the SIP proxy server, see: SIP proxy server.
