Ripple Xpring, has reportedly announced the release of its software development kit, Xpring SDK to support the interledger protocol (ILP). Xpring has stated that it started to work on the software development kit (SDK) with support for a few languages as of October 2019.

The software development kit looks forward to enhancing simplification and unifying Xpring’s offerings across its protocols and products.

Their long term vision was the expansion of SDK beyond the XRP. Also, in the beginning, SDK had been integrated for the XRP Ledger. Xpring SDK’s new versions that are made available today for the languages including JavaScript, Java, Swift is to support Interledger Protocol (ILP).

Ripple’s Xpring SDK to Support ILP

Besides expanding the SDK’s functionality beyond XRP, ILP will enable interoperability amongst different ledgers. Ripple’s investment arm states they have taken their first step to deliver an ultimate vision for the SDK through the feature addition. Also,  it seeks to provide support to additional protocols and complex interactions between the already existing ones.

Ripple Xpring team has admitted the various hurdles they have faced in their journey of SDK development. It stated that it has now added functionality and has enabled stable API to their libraries. DApp developers can now decentralize themselves from Xpring’s infrastructure. This is as the libraries feature a direct connection to any rippled node.

Furthermore, they have outlined how its team has incorporated code to let users connect to a remote ILP node. Also, their team mainly wants to support the software that drives the XRP Ledger nodes and its validators.

Regarding the same, it added that any user can run a rippled node and can connect to the node through the SDK. Hence, eradicating the chances for Xpring being a centralized point of failure. 

Lastly, Xpring does not forget to imbibe encouragement in users for the decentralization of the network. Alongside, the practice of self-reliance by users through the running of their own nodes.
