Test on V1.16
After testing on the last version, 1.15, I was emailed by the project lead that there was a newer version availble. This version turned out to be able to complete all of its examples (tho logs for example 9 of 13 suggest it might not be working). The benchmark which didn't run at all on the last version ran with 2 of three tests completing. All in all, a much better showing. I'm going to go ahead and install this product.

Re: Usability and quality
I tested also example9 and work well under SuSE Desktop 10.1.

The correct usage is:


Run server: ./examples/example9


Run client: ./examples/example9 localhost

Re: Usability and quality
I tested example5 and example6 and work well under SuSE Desktop 10.1.

The correct usage is:

Run server: ./examples/example5
Run client: ./examples/example5 localhost

Run server: ./examples/example6
Run client: ./examples/example6 localhost

Re: Usability and quality
Benchmark.cpp fails due to a bug in FileTransfer.cpp module only under Linux. Now the current download (1.16) containts the correct version of FileTransfer.cpp.

Usability and quality

An interesting product which manages to do some of what CORBA does without the complexity. As an ACE+TAO user, I can appreciate the utility of using this product to do some of the simpler tasks.


The software package unpacks, configures, and builds without a hitch on FC4. It doesn't seem to have any silly requirements and its build environment is dead simple. The first thing I tried to do with it was to run the benchmarks in the examples directory. Unfortunately several things beyond the basic connectivity failed, such as publish and subscribe.


After the above failure, I decided to run tests. Hmm... tests don't exist. Ok, so a few more of the examples. There are 13 examples, I tried benchmark (failed), example 1 (succeeded), example2 (succeeded), example3 succeeded, example4 (indirect messages) succeeded, example5 (unsolicited messages) failed, example6 (Network Conversation) failed, example7 (request/reply messages) succeeded, example8 (cluster with failover) succeeded, example9 (publish/subscribe) failed, example10 (store and foreword) succeeded, example11 (structured network messages) worked, example12 (memory channel) worked, example13 (distributed lock manager) worked.
