CORBA24 — Compacting GIOP messages by using indirections

  • Key: CORBA24-133
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1130
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: Repeated strings within an encapsulation can account
    for a large percentage of the size of the encapsulation.
    Indirections are already used in the marshaling of TypeCodes
    to allow compacting of messages. This can be extended
    to also allow indirection for strings. The current
    encoding of a string is the unsigned long number of characters
    in the string, followed by the null-terminated characters
    comprising the string. If we resolve the maximum value
    for unsigned long "0xffffffff" for indirections, the
    next byte can refer to a previously marshaled string.
