ICE with Qt ?


has anyone already tried using ICE together with Trolltech's QT?
In particular, is it compatible, since QT has its own application class,
own thread abstractions etc? Will it work on both Win and Linux ?

    Hi Mario,

    I've used both Qt & Ice in the same application with no issues whatsoever. For both client & server side applications you don't have to do anything special.

    Ice::Application is only a convenience class, and not something that has to be used.

    If you need additional details or help please ask.

    Best Regards, Matthew

    If someone sees this message, do you have a Qt project using Ice? I need an example.

    We still don't have a demo that shows the use of Qt with Ice. However, if you do a search on Qt on the forums, you will get a number of threads that discuss the use of Qt with Ice and don't hesitate to ask if you have a specific question :).

    Indeed we have one, the latest release of our Chat Demo include a Qt graphical client. I encourage you to read the articles, and review the code.
