Windows Installers

Windows Installer for Visual Studio .NET 2003

Ice-3.0.1-VC71.msi

Everything needed to use Ice in all of the supported language mappings (C++, Java, C#, Visual Basic, Python, PHP) on Windows 2000/XP. This installer includes executables, debug and release DLLs, header files, import libraries, PDBs, Java classes, sample programs, and third-party dependencies.

Visual Studio .NET 2003 is only required for C++, C#, and Visual Basic developers.

ThirdParty-3.0.1-VC71.msi

Use this installer if you want to build Ice for C++ from sources. It includes header files and DLLs for Ice's third-party dependencies:

  • Berkeley DB 4.3.29
  • OpenSSL 0.9.8a
  • Libbzip2 1.0.2
  • Expat 1.95.8

Ice for Java users who do not want to install the full Ice distribution may also find this installer useful, as it includes the Java classes for Berkeley DB.

Sample Programs for Binary Archives

Ice-3.0.1-demos.tar.gz

The Ice sample programs for binary archives. These sample programs are already included in the source code distributions, the Windows installers, and the development kit RPMs.

Source Distributions

Ice for C++

Ice-3.0.1.tar.gz
Ice-3.0.1.zip

The complete Ice for C++ source code.

Ice for Java

IceJ-3.0.1.tar.gz
IceJ-3.0.1.zip

The complete Ice for Java source code and class/jar files.

Note that, to build Ice for Java, you must first compile Ice for C++ or, alternatively, download and install an appropriate binary distribution. This is necessary because the Slice-to-Java compiler is written in C++.

Ice for C#

IceCS-3.0.1.tar.gz
IceCS-3.0.1.zip

The complete Ice for C# source code. (Visual Studio .NET 2003 and Mono 1.1)

Note that, to build Ice for C#, you must first compile Ice for C++ or, alternatively, download and install an appropriate binary distribution. This is necessary because the Slice-to-C# compiler is written in C++.

Ice for Visual Basic

IceVB-3.0.1.tar.gz
IceVB-3.0.1.zip

The Ice for Visual Basic sample programs. (Visual Studio .NET 2003)

Note that, to build the sample programs, you must first compile Ice for C# and C++ or, alternatively, download and install an appropriate binary distribution. This is necessary because the Slice-to-VB compiler is written in C++, and the Visual Basic mapping requires the Ice for C# run time.

Ice for PHP

IcePHP-3.0.1.tar.gz
IcePHP-3.0.1.zip

The complete Ice for PHP source code. Requires Ice for C++ and PHP 5.0.5 or 5.1.2.

Ice for Python

IcePy-3.0.1.tar.gz
IcePy-3.0.1.zip

The complete Ice for Python source code. (Python 2.3 or 2.4 on Windows, Linux, Solaris, HP-UX, and MacOS X)

Note that, to build and use Ice for Python, you must first compile Ice for C++ or, alternatively, download and install an appropriate binary distribution. This is necessary because the Python mapping requires the Ice for C++ run time.

Source Code for Third-Party Software

Third-Party Source Code

ThirdParty-Sources-3.0.1.tar.gz
ThirdParty-Sources-3.0.1.zip

The source code for the third-party software that Ice depends on. (The GPL requires that we make these available. You do not need to download this archive unless you want to build these third-party packages from source code yourself.)
