Perhaps lost among the waves of news from this week's JavaOne show is this tidbit: Sun has begun working with Ericsson and the GlassFish community to develop an open-source, Java-based communications server.

Ericsson is contributing its SIP (Session Initiation Protocol)-based application server to the project under open-source licenses. That code will serve as the basis for a JSR 289-compatible SIP servlet container that can run on Java application servers. Sun plans to bring a Sun-supported product--dubbed the Sun Java System Communications Application Server--to market based on the open-source code.

The server will let IT access telephony capabilities in support of multimedia, voice over IP, instant messaging and next-generation CTI applications, the vendors said. Additional information can be found at
