I had a quick look at the Ice.

If you want to program Erlang type applications in Java or C++, this might
be a good framework to use. I.e. distributed concurrent systems.

But it would help you to avoid a lot of the inherent
problems in C++ such as pointer errors, memory leaks etc. As well as that
as Ice threads are in no way memory protected from each other, the Erlang/OTP
style to make distributed fault tolerant systems is not applicable.
But if you are sourcing a lot of ready made C++ or Java software,
Ice could well be the way to go.


Ice is probably what Corba would have been if it hadn't been designed by
a comittee....
