  • Documentation, Documentation and Documentation... 1) Documentation which contains a reasonably diverse collection of explained examples which are also included in the distribution "demo" folders, rather than a reoccurring trivial example which is…

  • Karl, I agree that the functional envelope for middleware is non-trivial, and intuition would tend to suggest that by definition a tool adequate for the task would be also. But then, API design, QA testing, facilitating user experience and corner…
  • "sys.__stdout__.write( "..." )" does not work either.
  • Using the following command: "patch --binary -p0 < patch.mcpp.2.7.2" ...results in the following error messages: "patching file ./src/internal.H Hunk #1 FAILED at 390. Hunk #2 FAILED at 559. 2 out of 2 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects t…
  • Mark, Using Slice2py helped in one regard, but I am still getting the following error which leads me to believe that ICE is configured to only run in the main thread: Traceback... ...c:\Ice-3.3.1\python\Ice.py", line 744, in main Application._…
  • Hello! I'm using PC/XP Pro SP2, ICE 3.3.1 w/ VC90.msi, and no, but I will give it a try! Thanks, Andy
  • Mark, I wish I could. Matlab calls python, python snippit as follows: import Ice Ice.loadSlice('xxx.ice') .... ...at the point the python script is called results in this error: "Slice processing failed for 'xxx.ice'." ...end of parad…
  • You are correct, it is c:\ice-3.3.1 (evils of multitasking). But...only one Ice version installed. Thanks, Andy
  • Yes, and that was the default folder name using the "Ice-3.3.1-VC80.msi" file. Thanks, Andy
  • Yes, the file is located in c:\ice-3.1.1\slice\ice\. The only way I can get it to work is copy the slice\ice folder locally, and change from <> to "" in the include statement of the callback.ice file. Thanks, Andy
  • Mark, Thank you for the reply. But get the same error using: slice2cpp -IC:\Ice-3.3.1\slice Callback.ice I'm using vs2005, but at this point do not know if the solution/project files were supplied or I created them. The error is as follows: "err…
  • The Apparent Answer to the Question The apparent answer is that the "name" = "callback" in "CallbackSender.Proxy=callback..." (from config.client) can be used to invoke more than one callback method in "CallbackReceiver", as long as the fol…
  • Meaning of "callback" in "CallbackSender.Proxy=callback..." Josh / Jose, Thanks for the replies, but the apparent disconnect revolves around the meaning of "callback" in "CallbackSender.Proxy=callback..." You have stated that it is the ICE…
  • How to config multiple callbacks in the same interface Benoit, Thank you for your explaination. I have previously added additional callbacks in the CallbackReceiver interface. The source of my question lies w/ uniquely specifying the individual …
  • Permission Related Hypotheses I don't believe it is permissions related for the following reasons: a) Service runs as "SYSTEM", Command-line runs as "user" b) The same identical TRACE output files are created in both instances, but the content …
  • The Latest Twist Benoit, Using the supplied example provided by you as a guide, I adapted the OMERO ICE deployment descriptor to perform as advertised (by Zeroc), as long as the IceGrid invocation and IceGridAdmin deployment were both performe…
  • Thanks for the IceGrid/IcePatch2 Example Benoit, Thanks for the IceGrid/IcePatch2 example demo. It really should be put into the demo/IceGrid distribution folder. The provided example works as advertised, but the upshot of the matter appear…
  • Trace Output Benoit, The problem is three-fold. First, if the IceGrid.Node.Output property is not set, there is no trace output even with the settings previous posted. Second, if the IceGrid.Node.Output property is set, there is trace output on …

  • Benoit, I'm using Ice v3.3.1 on WinXP. I attempted your suggestion w/ negative results as follows: C:\Ice-3.3.1\demopy\Ice\hello>python client.py Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:\Ice-3.3.1\python\Ice.py", line 766, in main statu…
  • Bernard: The phonebook use case was intended to facilitate a distinction in light of yours and Michi's prior explaintions, not an absence of understanding what the code is doing. From Michi:"If you have a Slice class instance and compare it with …
  • Clairification of "Identity" Michi & Bernard, First, I appreciate your replys. To use the demo/freeze/phonebook as a use case: "PhoneBookI::createContact(const Ice::Current& c)" uses a UUID to create an "identity" which is subseq…
  • Clairification of "Identity" "To do so, Ice needs to determine whether two nodes are the same or not, and this done by comparing Node pointers in C++, or Node object references in Java." Implies that "Ice::Identity" refers to "object" rather t…
  • Clairification Careful is good, and I could have surmised your response. But the specific distinction I have requested clairification on is not clear to this "casual observer", given the documentation and newsletter articles (plus your FAQ refere…
  • First a clairification Hello, Thanks for your reply. Before I respond to your post, I need a clairification of meaning. In the context of servants, your meaning of "identity" is refering to object or instance of object (as in "car" or "VIN_1", "…
