Components written for openBOXware for Android, i.e. media sourcesmedia targets, and applications, are written like any other normal Android component and can be programmed using the Java programming language and the standard Android APIs found in its SDK.

Additional functionalities exposed by openBOXware‘s architecture can be used by any of the mentioned components after linking the OpenBoxWareLib library to their source code. This package enriches the APIs found in Android by exposing functions which are strictly related to openBOXware for Android. Once a component is deployed relying on the framework, when installed the framework itself will recognize its dependency and correctly show it as a media source or an openBOXware application, instead of a standard Android application or service.

The OpenBoxWareLib and relative documentation will be released soon.
