CORBA23 — IDL struct issue

  • Key: CORBA23-198
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1585

  • Summary:

    Summary: IDL structs are specified to have "one or more" members rather than
    "zero or more".

    Whilst it might be argued from a stylistic point of view that an empty
    struct is of limited use, of should be avoided, there are places where
    it may be desirable to specify a placeholder struct for later expansion,
    or for machine generated code where there happens to be nothing to fill
    the struct with.

    I can see no compelling technical reasons for requiring that a struct
    contain at least one member, so I propose that the grammar be revised to
    alow for a struct with zero members.

    Such a change would not break any existing IDL.
