CORBA22 — CORBA::Contained::describe() underspecified

  • Key: CORBA22-106
  • Legacy Issue Number: 918
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: The describe() operation of the CORBA::Contained interface of the
    Interface Repository is under-specified in CORBA 2.1. (section 7.5.3
    on page 7-12). The text should add that the "kind" field of the returned
    Description struct should give the DefinitionKind for the "most derived"
    type of the object. Without this, the spec can be read as allowing
    describe() to return a kind of dk_Typedef, or even dk_all!
