Third-Party Dependencies

On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 4, certain language mappings rely on third-party packages that are not available in the standard distribution. You only need to install these dependencies if you plan to use the language mapping:

On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, we recommend installing the following Mono RPMs in order to use Ice for C#:

On SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10, you must update your Mono installation to version 1.2.2 in order to use Ice for C#.

Source Distributions

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

Ice for C++

Ice-3.2.1.tar.gz
Ice-3.2.1.zip

The complete Ice for C++ source code.

Ice for Java 5

IceJ-3.2.1-java5.tar.gz
IceJ-3.2.1-java5.zip

The complete Ice for Java source code, JAR files and sample programs. This distribution uses the default 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 Java 2

IceJ-3.2.1-java2.tar.gz
IceJ-3.2.1-java2.zip

The complete Ice for Java source code, JAR files and sample programs. This distribution uses the Java 2 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 C#

IceCS-3.2.1.tar.gz
IceCS-3.2.1.zip

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-3.2.1.tar.gz
IceVB-3.2.1.zip

The Ice for Visual Basic sample programs.

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.

IcePHP-3.2.1.zip

The complete Ice for PHP source code.

Ice for Python

IcePy-3.2.1.tar.gz
IcePy-3.2.1.zip

The complete Ice for Python source code.

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.

Ice for Ruby

IceRuby-3.2.1.tar.gz
IceRuby-3.2.1.zip

The complete Ice for Ruby source code.

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