Icebox descriptor

xdmxdm La Coruña, SpainAdministrators, ZeroC Staff Jose Gutierrez de la ConchaOrganization: ZeroC, Inc.Project: Ice Developer ZeroC Staff
Hi i have an IceBox file descriptor like this
<icebox id="FileService"
 <service name="Files" entry="Files:create">
	<adapter name="${service}" endpoints="tcp">

how my service can retrieve the value of objects add to adapter when it start?

what i try to do is retrieve the id "FileServer/FileServer" and if object not exist create it. is this posible or must i add and extra property and use it inside <object/> and retrive via communicator->getProperty()?

    Hi Jose,

    You need to add an extra property to your service configuration.

    The <object> descriptor is used only when the service is deployed on a node (within an icebox server), to register the object with the IceGrid registry.

    <object> does not add any property to the generated Ice configuration, and the registration with the IceGrid registry occurs just at deployment time--not each time the icebox server starts.
