Squid implements the host application part of eCAP. Copying that Squid code into another proxy does not make sense -- the copied code would not work in the other proxy environment because it maps eCAP APIs to Squid-specific structures/APIs that another proxy cannot have.

However, it is possible to implement the host application part of the eCAP protocol in another HTTP proxy server. eCAP is not specific to Squid and there are other host applications that implement eCAP.

Can you help with this problem?
