    While working on iphone security architecture, i came to know that i can run applications from other applications in iphone. referring to the following url

    http<colon><forward_slash><forward_slash>iphonedev elopertips.com/cocoa/launching-other-apps-within-an-iphone-application.html

    for example, i can put a link in a website with following hyperlink
    Code:
    skype://<phonenumber>
    will result skype to run and call at particular number. Now i have few concerns here.
    • is there a shell running in background in iphone, so that it allows other application to run basic app commands.
    • if the above statement is true then how can i enable or run commands directly into iphone shell?
    • if above statements are false, then could you please explain how these commands are being executed?
    • is this part of iPhone SDK? or this funcationality is iPhone OS

    it's not a shell. you're thinking too "desktop"

    it's in the SDK. Keep looking at it.
