    Hi

    Can I write any code for "Core Services Layer" ? If so, how can I distribute to my customers ? Like for apps we have iTunes is anything available for "Core Services Layer" apps?

    Thanks

    Your question doesn't make sense. Core Services is the API layer that includes all sorts of things, like Core Data, WebKit, Foundation, Security, etc. You can use any of those in your apps.

    I'm rephrasing my question. I want to write my own service like WebKit, Security, Core Data and make use that for my application. Is it possible? (something similar to NDK - Development in Android).

    You can write or use frameworks as long as they are statically linked with your application (i.e. you compile the framework code along with the rest of the app). If you want to distribute just the framework to other developers, you have to distribute the source code.

    Really? You can't use private frameworks within the app bundle? If you could, then the OP wouldn't need to distribute source code, just a framework bundle.

    You can't use frameworks but you can distribute statically linkable binary libraries that can get linked into the single allowable executable.
