What is the best inter-process communication method?
I would like to know the best inter-process communication method. Plz considering the following scenario:
I need to write a mail server and a mail client on symbian. The server is responsible for communication between SMTP/POP3 mail server. The mail client is user interface for user response. Now the question is :
(1) What is the best method of inter-process communication method, science the mail server and the client should be in different process. The server is avoke when the handset is poweron, while the client is triggered only when user select it or the server notice it about a mail comming.
(2) Moreover, the communication content between mail server and client have a variaty of type, such as synchronization, text data/vedio/audio attachment transfer an so on. How should these complicated content types are considered?
(3) What is the best method for inter-process communication between the mail server reside on the handset and the SMTP/POP3 mail server reside on a MSWindows or Linux server, since the complexity of content types should also be considered?
