Hi all, The tutorial gives an example of communication between nodes in the same package. Is it possible to use service to communicate between nodes in different package? Does that mean I should load two manifests?

Yes, it is definitely possible.

You just define the service in any package (e.g. package A) and make package A a dependency for the packages using the service. Of course, a package can use its own service, too.

This question is the same in principle (just for messages):
