Source Distributions

For compatibility information, please refer to our list of supported platforms.

Ice for C++

Ice-3.1.1.tar.gz

The complete Ice for C++ source code.

Ice for Java 2

IceJ-3.1.1-java2.tar.gz
IceJ-3.1.1-java2.zip

The complete Ice for Java source code, JAR files and sample programs. This distribution uses the default Java language mapping that supports both Java 2 and Java 5.

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 Java 5

IceJ-3.1.1-java5.tar.gz
IceJ-3.1.1-java5.zip

The complete Ice for Java source code, JAR files and sample programs. This distribution uses the Java 5 language mapping and requires a Java 5 environment.

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-3.1.1.tar.gz
IceCS-3.1.1.zip

IcePHP-3.1.1.zip

The complete Ice for PHP source code.

Ice for Python

IcePy-3.1.1.tar.gz
