eCAP is a software interface that allows a network application, such as an HTTP proxy or an ICAP server, to outsource content analysis and adaptation to a loadable module. For each applicable protocol message being processed, an eCAP-enabled application supplies the message details to the adaptation module and gets back an adapted message or a "not interested" response. These exchanges often include message bodies.

If you are familiar with the ICAP protocol (RFC 3507), then you may think of eCAP as an "embedded ICAP", where network interactions with an ICAP server are replaced with function calls to an adaptation module.
