Ice is a modern alternative to object middleware such as CORBA or COM/DCOM/COM+. It is easy to learn, yet provides a powerful network infrastructure for demanding technical applications. It features an object-oriented specification language, easy to use C++ and Java mappings, a highly efficient protocol (including protocol compression), asynchronous method invocation and dispatch, dynamic transport plug-ins, TCP/IP and UDP/IP support, SSL-based security, a firewall solution, and much more.
OjBect Console is a Web application that provides administrative facilities for the Object Relational Bridge (OJB) persistence framework. This console provides transparent browse, search, create, update, and delete functionality for the objects configured within OJB. In addition, it provides administrative functionality such as cache management and a configuration viewer. Finally, it can be extended to build a data management Web application. The general idea is to provide a useful administrative tool to OJB and a solid reference application for OJB/Struts.
