In order to make a coherent system, processes usually have to pass information back and forth, and that's where IPC comes in.
However, it turns out that the models of IPC available are very similar, in both Windows Multiprocessor and Sun Solaris though the implementations differ greatly.
IPC mechanisms include :-
Both UNIX and Windows have an extensive set of process and thread synchronization techniques.
Both operating systems use semaphores, which are synchronization primitives used to control access to a resource that can support a limited number of users.
Both UNIX and Windows also use mutex objects to control mutually exclusive access to a resource.
MQs IN UNIX:
One application sends messages to the queue; another application reads messages from the queue.
The queues are memory based and are very fast as a result.
Message queues were introduced in AT&T System V.2 UNIX.
