CORBA22 — Ambiguity in non_existent() specification

  • Key: CORBA22-98
  • Legacy Issue Number: 903
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: There is a minor ambiguity here. Consider the case where the ORB cannot
    make a reliable determination because the client-side run-time cannot
    reach the implementation repository or the server. In that case, most
    ORBs will raise a TRANSIENT or COMM_FAILURE exception. I can read the
    above words in the spec to mean that a compliant implementation of
    non_existent is allowed to hide the exception from me and return false
    instead.
    I suggest to amend the wording such that non_existent is obliged to propagate
    any exception other than OBJECT_NOT_EXIST back to the caller.
