Well, no, it can't, as there is no more DCOP. Instead you can use
DBUS. See here for more information:

http://techbase.kde.org/Development/Tutorials/D-Bus/Accessing_Interfaces
http://techbase.kde.org/Development/Tutorials/D-Bus/Intermediate_D-Bus

and so on. Having a look at kde.org is allways a good idea when it
comes to KDE IMHO.
