Legacy Issue Number: 1531
Summary: Proposal: allow for alternate, compact encoding of typecodes
It is clear that typecodes are quite long when encoded into CDR and
transmitted over the wire. This is particularly painful when the CORBA::Any
type is used in interfaces. Besides, the use of any is becoming increasingly
important in multiple CORBA specifications, and a global solution to this
problem should be provided.
My proposal is to allow for an alternate encoding of typecodes, for those
specific cases where type identification can be achieved either by other
application specific mechanisms (for example, Name-Value pairs) or where
the Repository Id of the type is enough to reconstruct the full typecode
information locally on the receiving side.
