Connect Your Android App to Any Platform, Anywhere with ORBexpress® for Android™

ORBexpress provides a lightweight communication framework that enables Android™ apps to communicate with applications and other devices everywhere. Developers of Android apps can now extend their apps to other devices, other systems and enterprise networks and applications. With ORBexpress for Android, the integration of these systems is simplified and easy.

The current Android SDK provides for connection among Android apps on the same device, but doesn’t address inter-process communication off the device. With ORBexpress, the challenge to connect Android apps to other devices is simplified. ORBexpress gives Android developers an easy path to exchange data with other systems, regardless of the computing device.

Using a common protocol, ORBexpress integrates easily with existing environments. This common protocol makes the exchange of application data easy and simple. ORBexpress provides a bridge that enables transparent communication to connect disparate systems to enterprise applications, networks, and other devices.

Because ORBexpress fully supports multi-threaded distributed applications across on all platforms, apps can communicate off the Android OS without impacting the application's responsiveness. ORBexpress for Android enables applications to communicate in the background without affecting the responsiveness of the UI.
