The problem with Ice is that it is not open source licensed when used in a non GPLv2 product. Another problem is that they do not publish the price of a commercial license.

That are restrictions that cause many programmers not to use it.

Belated thought on this topic: a much better way to connect a JavaScript front end with a Java back end, or any similar combination, would be with a binary RPC protocol like ICE <https://zeroc.com/products/ice>, that comes with tools to make it all work.

yes, JS = javascript, TypeScript etc. No, nothing to do with Java of course. Just that JS/TS are the languages that seem to be popular for web app development these days, and Java for the back-end. The connection between front and back-end that people seem to prefer these days is REST APIs, which both Java and JS can do easily enough.

Hi Thomas, does “JS” stand for JavaScript? If so, I don’t understand how Archie (written in Java, disappointingly) would enable JavaScript implementations. JavaScript has nothing in common with Java (apart from the name).
