ant-ipc server

ant-IPC-server is a server app and ant-ipc-lib a client library for developers, that simplifies the process of connecting to a server and sending remote procedure calls to your app and administrating/monitoring your developed running services.

Remote procedure call (RPC) is an Inter-process communication technology that allows a computer program to cause a subroutine or procedure to execute in another address space (commonly on another computer on a shared network) without the programmer explicitly coding the details for this remote interaction, receiving the results in the process that originated the call.

Real-time web functionality is the ability to have server code push content to connected clients instantly as it becomes available, rather than having the server wait for a client to request new data.

This platform, contains a server process, that redirects the RPC to it's destinatary and fordward the results. Same with remote events subscriptions and callbacks (REC).
