Please note that as of October 24, 2014, the Nokia Developer Wiki will no longer be accepting user contributions, including new entries, edits and comments, as we begin transitioning to our new home, in the Windows Phone Development Wiki. We plan to move over the majority of the existing entries over the next few weeks. Thanks for all your past and future contributions.
D-Bus is an inter-process communication (IPC) system, which make possible for applications to talk to one another. It is based on a message bus mechanism. Many Maemo applications and frameworks use D-Bus as communication engine. Examples include the GUI framework Hildon and the Internet Communication Framework Telepathy.
D-Bus has higher-level bindings specific to particular frameworks such as Qt, GLib, Java, C# and Python.
