Citrix Virtual Channel SDK for Citrix Receiver for Android

The Citrix Virtual Channel Software Development Kit (SDK) provides support for writing server-side applications and client-side drivers for additional virtual channels using the ICA protocol. The server-side virtual channel applications are on XenApp or XenDesktop servers. This version of the SDK provides support for writing new virtual channels for Receiver for Android. If you want to write virtual drivers for other client platforms, contact Citrix.

The Virtual Channel SDK provides:

  • The Citrix Android Virtual Driver AIDL Interfaces: IVCService.aidl and IVCCallback.aidl, used with the virtual channel functions in the Citrix Server API SDK (WFAPI SDK) to create new virtual channels.

  • A helper class designed to make writing your own virtual channels easier.

  • Working source code for three virtual channel sample programs that demonstrate programming techniques.

The Virtual Channel SDK requires the WFAPI SDK to write the server side of the virtual channel. You can find this resource from the Citrix website or by contacting us.
