             Summary: Porting Issue  -- Visual Studio compilers have different 
header files
                 Key: PROTON-122
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PROTON-122
             Project: Qpid Proton
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: proton-c
         Environment: Windows using Visual Studio 10
            Reporter: Mary hinton


Visual Studio compilers have different header files.

I looked through the files that qpid cpp uses for including Visual Studio 
header files. 
It looks like most of the diffences in header files are set up in Boost.
Boost uses the macro BOOST_WINDOWS.

Maybe we could use PROTON_WINDOWS for including the windows header files. 
If you don't want a new macro, we can use one of the Visual Studio specific  
macro (_WINDOWS) 
for the header files.

It's not really a CPLUSPLUS vs. C issue, since many of the header files are 
specific to Windows.
(for example winsock2.h which is used by C++ and C in Visual Studio).
Also, some of the current header files are not used on Windows, but may be used 
by CYGWIN or MinGW.

If this sounds okay, I'll set up a patch for including the necessary windows 
header files.
