What is best way to transfer files back and forth

alexmalexm Member Eskinder Alex MesfinOrganization: Medtronic, Inc.Project: www.medtronic.com
I am digging this. My question is if a client initiates a request for a raw file to be processed on a server and the server if modified the file and will return the processed file if not an error ... How can you handle file transfer in IcePy, is a mechanism exist to
0) Automagicaly made appear a file on each receiving end:
1) Do I have to depend on good old streaming, if available.
2) pass the content as stracture and put it togathert on each receiving end.

    This has been discussed many times in these forums. I recommend to search these forums for "file transfer".

    Be aware that transferring large sequences in Ice for Python is currently quite slow because Python's C API doesn't provide a way for us to efficiently construct and populate a tuple. We plan to investigate whether this situation can be improved, but it's not a high priority at present. If you have a commercial need for this, please contact [email protected].

    Take care,
