Legacy Issue Number: 1292
Summary: I just stumbled on the following paragraph in 13.3.4 describing the CDR
encoding of TypeCodes:
"The name parameters in tk_objref, tk_struct, tk_union, tk_enum,
tk_alias, and tk_except TypeCodes and the member name parameters in
tk_struct, tk_union, tk_enum and tk_except TypeCodes are not specified
by (or significant in) GIOP. Agents should not make assumptions about
type equivalence based on these name values; only the structural
information (including RepositoryId values, if provided) is significant.
If provided, the strings should be the simple, unscoped names supplied
in the OMG IDL definition text. If omitted, they are encoded as empty
This would suggest that the name and member name parts of a typecode
should never be considered significant when an ORB compares typecodes.
