How to broadcast message to other running apps?

Hi All,

          I want to develop an app that receiveives messages from server app on PC through WiFi and broadcast this message to another app (a game for example).

 

I achieve this in Android by creating a service that receives messages then broadcast it as a system message. all interested apps can receive this message.

 

 

How to acheive this in BlackBerry 10?

Hi,

Not sure if this is the best solution, but it's possible to use sockets. Check broadcastsender & broadcastreceiver samples on github:

Re: How to broadcast message to other running apps?

Thanks for reply but I am not talking about communication between mobile and PC. I am talking about internal communication between apps

Invocation framework is not suitable for this case.
