CORBA22 — IDL types are ambiguous with inheritance

  • Key: CORBA22-94
  • Legacy Issue Number: 783
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: What is the return type of parent(), short or long? The spec does not say whether the inherited ::y::y::z takes precedence, or whether it is ::x::z. The scope resolution rules don"t mention how to resolve such an ambiguity. The spec should be updated to state that ::x::z takes precedence (IDL example in corresponding archive "issue783")
