Documentation for Ice 3.5. The latest release is Ice 3.7. Refer to the space directory for other releases.

You can describe the Freeze database environment(s) used by your server or service with Database Environment Descriptors. Each descriptor describes a single Freeze database environment. 


The Database Environment Properties panel offers the following fields:

  • Name
    The name of the Freeze Database Environment. This name must be unique within the enclosing Ice communicator.

  • Description
    A free-text description of this database environment.

  • DB Home
    The path of the home directory of the Berkeley DB environment. The default is "Created by the IceGrid Node": when selected, IceGrid node creates automatically a directory in its local server tree. Otherwise, if you enter your own value, the path must exist: IceGrid node will not create this directory if it does not exist.

  • Properties
    This table shows a list of Berkeley DB properties for this database environment. These are not Ice properties. IceGrid generates a DB_CONFIG file in the DB Home directory with these settings.
