[sip-comm-dev] GSOC 2009


#1

Hi all,

I am a student of Department of Computer Science & Engineering, University
of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka.
I am interested in participating gsoc '09 by contributing to the "SIP
Communicator" project. I have
gone through the 'gsoc 2008 project list" and interested in participating
"Support for IAX2 Protocol"
which was not implemented last time.

Is this idea vacant? If it is how should I proceed?
(I tried to send this mail to the gsoc mentors list, but it failed)

Thanks!

Nice to meet you!

Glad to hear this! Note however that nothing is certain yet and that we
need to first get selected for participation in the 2009 edition.

Yes, the idea is still on our wish list. You could start by becoming a
project member, then downloading and building the project. There are a
number of examples and tutorials on our site which should help you get
started. Don't hesitate to drop us a note if you get stuck with any of them.

Cheers
Emil

Hi Emil,

I have become a project member and built the project. Also I have gone
through the documentation for the developers. Then I started
researching about IAX2 protocol implementations in Java and checked
out the source from the "Asterisk-java"[1] project for the study.

I have gone though the "Google SoC’09 Projects List" but the "support
for IAX2 protocol" idea is not listed.

Are you not offering gsoc applicants to apply for "IAX2 Integration" this year?
If not, is it too much for a gsoc student to handle?

Well, that depends on the student I guess. We are definitely interested
in it but it is also quite complicated so we would be quite demanding
toward a candidate who's applying for an IAX implementation. The major
difference (from our perspective) between IAX and protocols like SIP and
XMPP is that IAX handles both signalling and media while the other two
only do the signalling.

This makes the whole operation a bit tricky since you'd have to make
sure that our media module (bundle) would be exporting enough
functionalities for the IAX implementation to function properly.

Cheers
Emil

Disclaimer: We are still not accepted as a mentoring organization for
this year's edition of GSoC (just as no one else is at this point). You
should therefore know that there's a chance that we don't participate
and that hence none of our ideas gets backed by the program. If this
turns out to be the case you could still contribute as a regular FOSS
volunteer.

Hello Emil,

I have gone through some java projects which are implementing IAX2 protocol
in java. Following are those projects,

1) *nijax*[1]
       This a project hosted at google code, but unfortunately it is
inactive. The website is not updated recently. There last release was
uploaded June 2007. Anyway I posted some questions regrading the project
status, but didn't get a reply :(.

*2) Asterisk-java*

          This project currently not supported for IAX2 functionalities

    *3) Correlata SDK*
           Project's source is available under GNU GPL. but no documentation

According to the situation, I 'd like to work on a different project which
is listed in the new gsoc ideas page.

the project idea named as "Dude Check My Photo" [3] seems interesting. Is
anyone working on this?

If it is are there any protocols which you would like to add into the SC's
protocol list?
