Legacy Issue Number: 3736
A CORBA implementation for Ada 95 must provide a typecode constant
for predefined type Object. This typecode constant is a function
"function TC_Object return CORBA.TypeCode.Object".
According to the standard declaration of package CORBA
(5.4 CORBA package), "function TC_Object is in CORBA.Object".
According to the standard declaration of package CORBA.Object
(5.2.2 Object), package CORBA.Object does not contain any such
Thus we claim that there exist an inconsistency in the definition
of the location of function TC_Object.
The proposed resolution of this issue is to define a standard
location for funtion TC_Object. For consistency with user-defined
interfaces, we propose that a new standard package CORBA.Object.Helper
be defined, containing the declaration of function TC_Object.
We propose that the declaration of package CORBA be updated to
mention that function TC_Object is in CORBA.Object.Helper.
