Implementing Client Side WebRTC using Sipml5 javascript

Step 1:

Download and require Sipml5 library function.

Step 2:

Initialize sipml5 Engine in your web page :

var readyCallback = function(e) {
// function called when sipml is successfully initialised.
createSipStack(); // calling this function to create sip stack(see below)

var errorCallback = function(e) {
// function called when error occured during sipml initialisation.

SIPml.init(readyCallback, errorCallback);

Step 3:

Create Sip Stack :-
Sip Stack is an object that must be created before making/receiving call and sms. Creating Sip stack is an asynchronous process, so you need to create an event listener function to get state change notification.

var sipStack;

function EventListener(e) {

* e.type ;type of event listener
* e.session ; current event session
* e.getSipResponseCode() ; event response code
* e.description ; event description

if(e.type == 'started'){
// successfully started the stack.
} else if(e.type == 'i_new_call'){
// when new incoming call comes.
