The Internet Communications Engine (Ice) provides a robust, proven platform for developing mission-critical networked applications. Let Ice handle all of the low-level details such as network connections, serialization, and concurrency so that you can focus on your application logic.
Our Python extension makes the full Ice feature set available to Python developers, including:
- Client and server support
- Synchronous and asynchronous invocations
- Communicate via TCP, SSL, UDP, multicast, and WebSocket transports
- Supports IPv4 and IPv6
- Intuitive mapping from Slice to Python
To give you an idea of what it’s like to use Ice in Python, here’s a complete program that tests whether a remote Ice object is available:
import Ice communicator = Ice.initialize() obj = communicator.stringToProxy("hello:tcp -h myhost.mydomain.com -p 10000") obj.ice_ping() communicator.destroy()
With support for Python2 and Python3, you can easily add Ice to your existing Python infrastructure and discover how easy it is to build distributed applications with Ice.
This package includes the Ice extension for Python, the standard Slice definition files, and the Slice-to-Python compiler. You will need to install a full Ice distribution if you want to use other Ice language mappings, or Ice services such as IceGrid, IceStorm and Glacier2.
We recommend using pip or easy_install to install this package. If you install using python setup.py install instead, be aware that the Slice-to- Python compiler (slice2py) will not be available.
Visit ZeroC’s home page for the latest news and information about Ice.
We provide extensive online documentation for Ice, the Python extension, and the other Ice language mappings and services.
