Selecting the Java Mapping

Ice provides two distinct Java mappings:

  • Java Compat
    This mapping is largely source-compatible with prior Ice for Java releases.

  • Java
    This is a new mapping introduced in Ice 3.7. It requires Java 8 or later.

This chapter describes the Java mapping.

Selecting the Java Mapping

slice2java, the Slice-to-Java translator, generates code for the Java mapping by default.
