CORBA23 — Type code operations under-specified

  • Key: CORBA23-196
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1542

  • Summary:

    Summary: On page 8-38:

    Member_count [sic] returns the number of members
    constituting the type.

    This is a little ambiguous and easily confused with the number of parameters.
    For clarity, I would suggest to add a sentence to make this clearer, e.g.
    "For example, the member count of a structure with three members is three."

    This would help to avoid confusion with parameters (if I am not careful,
    I might think the number is six, because a the three members of a structure
    are described by six parameters, or I might think that the number is nine,
    because a three-member structure has a total of nine parameters).

    The origin for the index to the member_name operation is never defined.
    Presumably, indexes start at zero? If so, this must be stated.
