 I get a * NotSerializableException* exception trying to send objects
between two processes.

Is it possible to do client/server sending of serializable objects
between two processes ?

Use AIDL and remote services for that:

 Thanks Mark.

So , If I understand correctly, the communications between processes
is governed by IPC mechanism.

If I want to connect to a server from external jvm process, say a
client in his own vm, I can use the classic socket mechanism
to realize a connection ?

Yes, Android defines a default IPC mechanism (by means of AIDL)

Yes, sockets are also provided by Android. It can be used in place of
AIDL to connect two processes in the same device, as well as two
processes communicating through the network.
If you want distributed process, it may be important to read this: #emulatornetworking

2. APIs for stereoscopic camera support in Android 3.0?

Apparently, some Honeycomb (Android 3.0) tablets like the T-Mobile G-
Slate are coming out with dual rear-facing cameras for stereoscopic
video recording

I'd like to do some depth mapping and other real-time processing of
the live stereo video feed, but cannot find the relevant APIs for
working with stereoscopic camera input in the Android 3.0 Preview SDK.
Am I missing something, is it coming with the final Android 3.0 SDK,
or is this again a manufacturer's proprietary extension that is not
(yet) covered by an official Android 3.0? I know that Android 3.0 has
support for multiple cameras, but that is here insufficient to tell
for instance which cameraId represents the left camera and which
cameraId represents the right camera. Camera.CameraInfo currently only
offers CAMERA_FACING_BACK and CAMERA_FACING_FRONT, which is irrelevant
here. In the Preview SDK there is no
"Camera.CameraInfo.CAMERA_FACING_LEFT" or
"Camera.CameraInfo.CAMERA_FACING_RIGHT" or generalization thereof as
needed to prevent a possible fragmentation of conventions.
