  1. OMG Issue

CORBA24 — "omg.org" prefix missing from interceptor specification and its reference

  • Key: CORBA24-109
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3862
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Oracle ( Harold Carr)
  • Summary:

    The specification, ptc/00-08-06, defines the following modules:

    Dynamic
    IOP_N
    PortableInterceptor

    These modules reference the following modules:

    CORBA
    IOP
    Messaging

    The CORBA 2.4 specification, orbrev/00-09-01, only explicitly specifies:

    #pragma prefix "omg.org"

    for:

    DynamicAny (page 196)
    CORBA, the Interface Repository Case, (p 280)
    PortableServer (page 338)

    and the Messaging specification, orbos/98-05-05, specifies the prefix
    for messaging.

    ----------

    Proposed solution:

    Either explicitly add

    #pragma prefix "omg.org"

    before Dynamic, IOP_N, PortableInterceptor, CORBA (in general), and IOP

    OR

    Change, the second paragraph of 10.6.7 RepositoryIDs for OMG-Specified Types
    (page 270)

    from:

    "All official OMG IDL files shall contain the following pragma prefix
    directive:

    #pragma prefix "omg.org"

    unless said file already contains a pragma prefix identifying the
    original source of the file (e.g., "w3c.org")."

    to:

    "All official OMG IDL modules shall contain the following pragma prefix
    directive:

    #pragma prefix "omg.org"

    unless said file already contains a pragma prefix identifying the
    original source of the module (e.g., "w3c.org")."

    ----------

    Discussion:

    Perhaps we can interpret 10.6.7 above to mean already mean the all
    official OMG modules have the "omg.org" prefix. In that case, there
    is no issue.

    The last sentence of the summary states the way things are, so there really is no issue here
