A mobile operating system, regarded as the modified version of the Kernel, Linux, and other sources. The android open-source code is Apache Licensed. The android application is written in Java, C++, and Kotlin with an Android Software Development Kit. Android Debug Bridge runs the commands on the android device. In case if you opt for Kotlin to write on android:
i. Native with Kotlin
Kotlin codes compile with Native/Kotlin technology to native binaries and run without a virtual machine. Kotlin supports Android NDK, where the parts of the application are implemented in native code. Kotlin promotes duo-way interoperability with native. In one way, compiler formulates:
● Dynamic library or static library for C/C++ projects with C header.
● Executable for several platforms.
In another way, Kotlin promotes interoperability with existing libraries from native:
● Objective-C, Swift, and C framework.
● Dynamic or static C Libraries
Metal foundation, POSIX, and gzip libraries are pre-imported to include these into compiler packages as Native/Kotlin libraries. With Native libraries, Kotlin codes are shared within projects.
