ICE in Java
Rice is a Ruby ICE implementation. Specifically, it implements an ICE syndicator that publishes time stamps and an ICE subscriber that consumes time stamps.
Rice was developed based on the "ICE Implementation Cookbook: Getting Started with Web Syndication" by Adam Souzis, Laird Popkin, Sami Khoury, and Bruce Hunt. This document may be found on the ICE specification Web page.
The Information and Content Exchange (ICE) is an XML-based protocol for content syndication and subscription. For more information, see the ICE specification Web page.
Ruby is an object-oriented scripting language by Yukihiro Matsumoto. Visit the official Ruby Web site for more information.
The documentation page contains links to the User's Manual and RDocs.
