This post describes the requirement of creating a SIP phone application on android over the same codecs as WebRTC ( PCMA , PCMU , VP8) . In my project concerning the demonstration of WebRTC inter operability ( presence , audio / video call , message ) with a native android client , I had to develop a lightweight Android SIP application , customized for the look and feel of the webrtc web application . This also enables the added services to WebRTC client such as geolocation , visual voice mail , phonebook , call control options be set from android application as well .
Android webrtc- sip client development , using sipml5 stack implemented through web services and native android programming .
⦁ Eclipse IDE
⦁ Java SE Development Kit 7.0
⦁ Android SDK
⦁ Authorization of a user, based on his/her credentials (Database local to the application).
⦁ Navigation Drawer on the home page which shows a menu giving the user various options like:
⦁ View Home Page
⦁ View Contact List

⦁ View My Location
⦁ Sign Out
⦁ Phonebook sync : Importing contact list of the Android Phone into the application. Editing user profile with values like User Name , Password , Domain.
⦁ Inclusion of a Web View in the application which currently opens the desired webpage(http://sipml5.org/call.htm).

⦁ Connecting the application to a database which sits on the cloud.
⦁ Based on the entries in the database the user will be able to:
⦁ Login to the application.
⦁ View or edit his/her details in the My Profile Section.
⦁ Understanding codes of sample applications for making SIP calls from Android OS like:
⦁ Modifying the existing application to be able to make SIP calls like one of the apps listed above.
- Development of an authorization page connecting the application to a local database from where values are inserted and retrieved.
- Development of navigation drawer where additional options for the application will be displayed making it a user friendly application.
1.Connectivity to a cloud database.
2. App engine on cloud.
3. Importing contacts from phone address book .
4. Offine storage of profile details and few call logs .
