How to implement binder services, when client applications are in different processes?
either b or c
Binder is used if both client and server are in same application.
If client and service (server) are in different applications, then this can be implemented in two ways:
1. Messenger - is a simple way to implement binder service, which is single threaded mode.
With this, your service can handle only one client request at a time.
2. aidl (Android interface definition language) - use it if you want multi threaded capability for your server/service.
With this, your service can handle multiple requests at a time. But little complicated.
Make sure that you are writing always thread safe program in your service when using with aidls.
This is not recommended for most of the implementations.
