It’s just data


While updating my Ubuntu laptop, I noticed D-Bus being downloaded.  What caught my eye was the python bindings.  Usage of Python decorators reminiscent of C# attributes.  Object_path reminiscent of Java class names.

It has an introspection format in XML, though the protocol itself is binary.

While comparisons with other systems used for RPC is inevitable, this protocol is aimed squarely at IPC.
