What is RPC?
First, let’s talk about RPC. The RPC stands for “remote procedure call” and this is the method by which the computer communicates with another machine. Makes things a bit of mistaking that for present-day PCs performing various tasks and running numerous projects without a moment’s delay, RPC has turned into a strategy that a few applications use to speak with different applications running on a similar PC. RPC is essentially only a framework that enables distinctive procedures to speak with one another to play out an undertaking.
The entire procedure works backward when the server has carried out its responsibility and has information to send back to the starting project.
