I'm a student performing my final project please, does anyone know's where to download Ice for android, the download page isn't available anymore on the ZeroC labs page ?

    Hello Fadi,

    Ice for Android is no longer a separate download; it is included in the Ice distribution.

  • So what do I need to do exactly?

    thanks a lot Bernard for your prompt reply,

    So I need just to compile ICE for java and take the generated ICE.jar into the the build path of my Android code in eclipse.

    many thanks in advance,

    Hi Fadi,

    You could simply use a binary distribution for your favorite platform, and use the Ice.jar in that distribution. You don't have to build from sources, although you can if you like.

    You should have a look at the Ice for Android demos; with Ice 3.4.2 on Windows, they are installed by default in <Documents>\ZeroC\Ice-3.4.2-demos\demoj\android.

    With respect to "connection" with native Linux libraries, do you mean Android NDK? If you want to use Ice and C++ on Android, you may want to try

    Best regards,
