ADEN is a network API that provides a fast way to exchange small messages between computers (usually on a LAN). It uses a special protocol implemented over UDP/IP to provide reliable in-order delivery, just like TCP sockets.

If you are using ADEN in your application please support ADEN project by mentioning that somewhere in your application UI / project page and add a link to this page.
