GCS arises out of Sun’s open source Project Sailfin, a collaboration effort among Sun and leading telecom firms focused on delivering SIP capabilities to developers on the Java EE platform. This standards-based platform is compliant with SIP Servlets Specifications 1.0 and 1.1 (JSR 116 and JSR 289).

“For the past two years, we've been working with customers and a great developer community to make the GlassFish Communications Server one of the best high performance, standards-based Java EE and SIP convergence platforms available today,” said Mark Herring, vice president of Software Infrastructure Marketing, Sun Microsystems, in a statement.
