I am working on an application pair, in which one application is a background application and another is a foreground application that user can launch from ribbon. My need is enable them to communicate with each other.
I am quite new to this programming environment. Can you please help me by telling, what all ways are there for IPC. Please list all available options, (no matter how tricky it can be) for IPC, since I need to evaluate every option.
Online pointers will be additionally appreciated.

Does this have to be two apps? You can run a background thread and a UI thread easily on the BB platform.
If not, then the only real option is global events.
See GlobalEventListener and ApplicationManager.postGlobalEvent()
