Would a question about which software technology to choose for a given scenario be on topic ?
The question I need to ask somewhere is along the lines of "I'm going to write a program to communicate with another process in a scenario X with requirements Y; which Inter Process Communication technologies fit best, Sockets or DCOM or Named Pipes or Shared Memory or etc.".
Would that be off-topic ? I already found that info about asking for libraries, tutorials/resources, macros, source code and programming tools but I'm not sure about technologies.
My first thought was asking on Stack Overflow but it seems to me that these questions are off-topic there.
