AIDL is Android Interface Definition Language. This IDL allows the user to define the programming interface; both the clients and service agree upon to communicate with each other using inter-process communication (IPC). On Android platform, it becomes difficult for one processor to access the memory of another process. They need to decompose their objects into primitive that the operating system can manage, and marshal the objects across. The code to perform that marshaling is tedious to write therefore Android handles this for the users with the help of AIDL
