icestorm without icebox

I'm interested in using icestorm to publish/subscribe to/from applications that I know beforehand will be running on the same computer (one app in c++, another in java). Is it possible to do this without running Icebox? Does it even make sense?

    Hi David,

    IceStorm can only be run as an IceBox service. Is there a reason why you don't want to use IceBox?

    Take care,

  • I just figured if I didn't need to, why bother. Also I don't want another window open--assuming it can only be run as a separate application. Is this the case? If it isn't, are there any examples of loading Icebox from within code?

    You can make your C++ application itself an IceBox service and then load both in the same process. For an example of how to do this look at demo/IceBox/hello.
  • I think I can make that work. Thanks so much for helping.

    Not to mention, thanks to the whole ICE team. I've been working with it for a while and it's top notch.
