Using IceStorm

Now we'll expand on the earlier weather monitoring example, demonstrating how to create, subscribe to and publish messages on a topic. We use the following Slice definitions in our example:

struct Measurement {
    string tower; // tower id
    float windSpeed; // knots
    short windDirection; // degrees
    float temperature; // degrees Celsius

interface Monitor {
    void report(Measurement m);

Monitor is our topic interface. For the sake of simplicity, it defines just one operation, report, taking a Measurement struct as its only parameter.
