CORBA24 — Wchar as discriminator in union

  • Summary:

    Summary: Just got a question from our IDL compiler folks - I think they"ve
    found a bug in the 2.3 IDL chapter..... (actually the bug has been there
    for a while)..

    Looking at the new CORBA2.3 book,

    The syntax for discriminated unions are described on two pages (3-16 and
    On both pages the <wchar_type> isn"t included in the grammar for
    <switch_type_spec>. Therefore my conclusion was that it shouldn"t be
    allowed. The problem is that further down on page 3-36 there is a table
    for "case label matching" and in that table wchar is listed as a
    discriminator type.

    So, was the wchar type forgotten from the grammar for switch type spec,
    was wchar mistakenly added to the table?
