This article introduces the ooRexx language binding for the D-Bus interprocess
communication. In order to do so it first introduces the D-Bus concepts and how they relate to each
other. The dynamically typed ooRexx language possesses a C++ API that gets used together with a
matching ooRexx package to create the language binding for the D-Bus. After introducing the core
ooRexx class, DBus, the abilities for creating ooRexx proxy objects for remote D-Bus service
objects, ooRexx listeners for D-Bus signals and ooRexx D-Bus service objects get documented.
ooRexx nutshell examples serve to demonstrate each of these abilities of the ooRexx D-Bus
binding, which the reader can use to assess this particular language binding. ooRexx programmers
should become able to understand the D-Bus concepts and put them to work for their purposes, after
studying this article.
