The Oracle Solaris ABI and ABI Tools

    The Oracle Solaris Application Binary Interface (ABI) defines the interfaces available application developers. Conforming to the ABI enhances an application's binary stability. This chapter discusses the Oracle Solaris ABI and the tools provided to verify an application's compliance with the ABI, including:

  • The definition and purpose of the Oracle Solaris ABI, discussed in Defining the Oracle Solaris ABI.

  • The usage of the two ABI tools, Preflight Checker and apptrace, discussed in Oracle Solaris ABI Tools.
