Thaks for your replies.

Thanks to Paolo Coletta's reply, I found the CodeProject article by Jarl
Lindrud "RCF - Interprocess communication for C++". It is similar to what I
suggested. Since it is not in a Boost library form Paulo suggests possible
integration between this library and boost.interface.

Thanks for making my attention on this. After looking at the article, I
understood that the Boost.Interface library will releive me from the burden
of writing a custom Macro library. However I couldn't find a link on that
page to get the source code of that library. Please tell me where can I get
the source code.

Yes. Internet Communication Engine (http://www.zeroc.com/ice.html) (Where I
got the inspiration for this project.) uses an IDL. Since this is a C++ only
project I thought I can avoid the additional step of code generation by
using Macros. ( I likek the macro bindings in boost.python. It is so simple
& smart than SWIG.)

Both TCP and UDP. (Option is given to the user.)
