CORBA23 — Local operations on CORBA::Object

  • Key: CORBA23-29
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2223
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: Basically, people get confused about which operations on CORBA::Object
    can go remote. It"s clear from the GIOP spec that only non_existent(),
    is_a(), get_interface(), and get_domain_managers() can go on the wire.
    It follows that things like nil(), hash(), and is_equivalent() must be
    local. However, as Owen Rees pointed out, this only applies to GIOP, not
    the core, but a compliant ORB need not provide GIOP.

    It seems that it would be a good idea to add some clarification to the core
    to state which operations on CORBA::Object must be local and which ones
    may (but need not) go remote.
