CORBA23 — Repository ID for Object

  • Key: CORBA23-87
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2548
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: Latest 2.3, draft (98-10-10), page 13-17:

    "A Null TypeID is the only mechanism that can be used to represent
    the type CORBA::Object."

    I am aware of more than one ORB that uses "".

    I don"t understand why:

    • a null ID should mean Object
    • why a perfectly good repository ID for Object should be disallowed

    Related to this is the fact that we made repository IDs mandatory in
    reference TypeCodes with the 2.3 revision. Unless an implementation is
    very careful, this could mean that, if it gets a reference that doesn"t
    have the repository ID, it could present an illegal TypeCode (with an
    empty ID) for that reference to the application.
