miniRPC: A TCP-Based Remote Procedure Call Library

miniRPC is a remote procedure call library which works on top of TCP and other stream-oriented transports. It is designed to be more powerful than SunRPC and easier to use. Like SunRPC, it communicates using the XDR data representation.

Status

miniRPC is no longer maintained.

The latest version is 0.3.3, released September 3, 2010.

Features

  • Simple on-the-wire protocol
  • Automatic stub generation
  • Scales to large numbers of connections
  • No need for a portmapper: clients connect directly to the well-known port for a service
  • Support for asynchronous RPCs, including out-of-order replies, at both client and server
  • Both the client and the server can initiate RPCs
  • Support for event notifications, which do not require a reply
  • Support for multi-threaded operation
  • Support for multiple RPC protocols and protocol roles in a single process
  • Extensive test suite
