Ice dependency tree


I'm new to this whole ICE/CORBA thing. I'm trying to get a sort of minimumICE that just does the very basic client-server functions, without the need of Freeze, Glacier, IceBox, IcePatch, IceSSL, IceStorm, IceWall?, IceXML and cutting out the depency to Bzip2, Berkeley DB, and Expat. I don't need any of the Java stuff either. So, having a dependency tree should (hopefully) help me cut out the "fat".

I know IceSSL is a plug-in and could possibly be removed easily ( I haven't looked into that yet), but what about the others? Has anyone used dOxygen to get an accurate picture of the dependencies?

I want to remake the slice2cpp application into slice2jojo or something like that, with conversions to my own basic types and possibly using my own connectors later.

Thanks much,

    If you only want to build enough of the source distribution to allow you to write Ice applications, you need to build the following directories:


    The only third-party libraries required to build these directories are STLport (depending on your compiler) and bzip2. Eliminating the dependency on bzip2 would require modifications to src/Ice/Connection.cpp.

    Take care,

    Thanks Mark,

    I'll do that and see where that brings me. I'm sure there'll be more questions later.
