Querying the Object Adapter endpoints

How can I query (or get) the endpoints of my object adapter from code?
Because when it comes from an external config file, or uses the 'default' random assigned port number - it is unknown by me.

I want to do a reverse process as a StringToProxy() - I want to create a string which contains all the information to access a registered object on a server - create a string, which can be sent away in the net to other Ice client to use the StringToProxy() function.

I cannto use the IcePack possibility for some reasons for this purpose - this is why I want to find another way to solve this problem.


  • The only way I can think of is to create a proxy with ObjectAdapter :: createProxy() (use a dummy identity), and then convert it to a string representation with Communicator :: proxyToString().
  • Ice.ObjectPrx prx = adapter.createProxy(Ice.Util.stringToIdentity("xx"));
    string s = ic.proxyToString( prx );

    it generates: s = "xx -t@MyAdapter"

    so it doesn't work :(
  • Right, this doesn't work if you use indirect proxies. There is no way to access the endpoint information in this case.
  • Ooops, something wrong. It is on the server side. Not on the client side. The server creates the Object Adapter using a config file to read the endpoint definition from outside. What I wanna know is what are the final endpoints which are set by the ICE run-time for that O.A. How comes the indirect proxy here?

    You probably have an AdapterId property defined for your adapter. If you are not using indirect proxies, there is no need for this property.

  • Mes, you are right. I had an AdapterId... When I comment it out, it is worlking now. Thanks a lot! :)
