Ice

Overview

module Ice

The Ice core library. Among many other features, the Ice core library manages all the communication tasks using an efficient protocol (including protocol compression and support for both TCP and UDP), provides a thread pool for multi-threaded servers, and additional functionality that supports high scalability.

Module Index

Instrumentation — The Instrumentation local interfaces enable observing a number of Ice core internal components (threads, connections, etc).

Class Index

ConnectionInfo — Base class providing access to the connection details.
EndpointInfo — Base class providing access to the endpoint details.
IPConnectionInfo — Provides access to the connection details of an IP connection
IPEndpointInfo — Provides access to the address details of a IP endpoint.
OpaqueEndpointInfo — Provides access to the details of an opaque endpoint.
TCPConnectionInfo — Provides access to the connection details of a TCP connection
TCPEndpointInfo — Provides access to a TCP endpoint information.

Dictionaries

dictionary<string, string> Context

A request context. Context is used to transmit metadata about a request from the server to the client, such as Quality-of-Service (QoS) parameters. Each operation on the client has a Context as its implicit final parameter.

local dictionary<string, Object> FacetMap

A mapping from facet name to servant.

local dictionary<Identity, Object> ObjectDict

A mapping between identities and Ice objects.

dictionary<string, string> PropertyDict
