ORBexpress for Android from Objective Interface Systems, Inc. (OIS) enables application developers to connect their Android apps to any platform, anywhere. Developers also can use ORBexpress to solve the Android device fragmentation problem by using a standard interface on all platforms. ORBexpress for Android provides an easy-to-use communication protocol for connecting disparate systems.
As the popularity of mobile platforms increases, software developers are challenged with connecting and extending existing applications to mobile devices. The current Android SDK has a well-defined development interface for communication within the individual Android device environment but lacks a simple lightweight application-level abstraction for distributed communication. With ORBexpress for Android, integrating these applications across different systems is simplified, enabling developers to easily connect Android apps, regardless of the Android platform, to applications on desktops, laptops, enterprise servers, Android devices, and other mobile devices using a common protocol.
ORBexpress for Android enables applications to communicate real-time in the background while still maintaining an responsive UI. ORBexpress fully supports multi-threaded distributed applications on all platforms. As a result, developers can communicate off the Android OS without impacting the application’s responsiveness. ORBexpress is a proven and reliable communications infrastructure that enhances time to market. Developers using ORBexpress for Android focus on their unique application development challenges, not building infrastructures.
With ORBexpress, Android apps can now interoperate with existing applications everywhere. ORBexpress enables transparent Android app communication to enterprise applications and other devices across architectures, programming languages, and operating systems.
ORBexpress is a high performance, secure real time implementation of the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) standard. The ORBexpress product provides a common communication platform that is available on a variety of processors, operating systems, compilers, and in C++, Ada, Java and VHDL for FPGA implementations.
