Create jar2ice and icewrap Maven plugin

The jar2lib command line tool provides a way to autogenerate C++ proxies corresponding to Java classes in a JAR file. We could create something similar, but using Ice for a inter-process solution. It would generate the Slice definition for all Java classes, as well as one servant class per Java class, which function largely by delegating to instances of the classes being wrapped.

There would need to be a "Main" entry point into the proxies, which is bootstrapped when first connecting to the Ice server, and contains all the new* methods that invoke object constructors on the server side.

The jar2ice program should also allow specification of a whitelist to limit which Java classes are exposed through Ice (see ticket #710).

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to wontfix

There is no time, nor compelling use case, to create these programs in the foreseeable future.
