I need cross-platform client/server inter-process communication (IPC),
and intend to use Qt5+.
It seems the blog post regarding the QtMobility API, "Qt Service
Framework" is the way to go:
- Initial blog post:
- Qt5 (beta) documentation:
- discussion about SWF, IPC, QtService:
This provides a high-level cross-platform interface for IPC, wrapping
named-pipes or DBus or some platform-appropriate technology. Yay.
That's what I want.
NOTE: I see the QtMobility API is an add-on. That's fine, but I'm
specifically interested in its use in "desktop".
QUESTION: Is the "Qt Service Framework" the intended future-direction
for high-level cross-platform IPC going-forward, and is it intended to
work for Qt5-Final?
(On Windows/Qt5-Beta1, it's not obvious to me how to get it
My "fall-back" for now would be to use QLocalSocket/QLocalServer and
do the process-discovery work myself. I'm just wondering if I should
expect to do that upon release of Qt5-final.
