XCAP protocol allows a client to read, write, and modify application configuration data stored in XML format on a server. XCAP maps XML document sub-trees and element attributes to HTTP URIs, so that these components can be directly accessed by HTTP. An XCAP server is used by the XCAP clients to store data like Presence policy in combination with a SIP server that supports PUBLISH/SUBSCRIBE/NOTIFY methods to provide a complete SIP SIMPLE server solution.
