Starting IceStorm with iceboxnet.exe


What are the arguments to start IceStrom with iceboxnet.exe. I know that IceStorm can be started with icebox.exe with the following argument:

IceBox.Service.IceStorm=IceStormService,36:createIceStorm --Ice.Config=config.service

And I know that I have to start a service in iceboxnet.exe with the assembly path and namespace:

IceBox.Service.MyService="C:\Program Files\MyService\MyService.dll:MyServiceImpl"

But for IceStorm I do not know the correct assembly nor the correct namespace.

I found neither in the documentation nor in the demos any information for that case.

I am using ice version 3.6.2

    IceStorm is a C++ service you need to use icebox.exe to start it, iceboxnet.exe is only for .NET services.

    The CSharp IceStorm library only contains the APIs required to use the IceStorm services not the service itself.

  • In our application we use IceStorm and have own .net Icebox services. Do we need to start both icebox.exe for icestorm and iceboxnet.exe for our services? That means we have to handle two icebox instances.
    Is it possible to start our .net services with icebox.exe? If yes, how?

    You need to start both, icebox.exe cannot be use to start .NET services
