CORBA24 — Optimization of LOCATION_FORWARD replies

  • Key: CORBA24-136
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1133
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: As of GIOP/IIOP 1.1, if a server wants to have a client
    use some locally hashed down object_key in future requests
    for an object, it must require one of the following:
    a) the client use a LocateRequest in order for the server
    to reply with a forwarded object reference that has
    a hashed down object key.
    b) respond with an OBJECT_FORWARD reply to the request,
    forcing the client to remarshal the request with the
    new target (the forwarded object reference"s key).
    With some already recommended changes to GIOP 1.1,
    such a reply will only require remarshaling the
    message header, but an extra roundtrip is still required.

    This could be avoided by addind a new service context
    to the reply that contains the forward IOR, or a new
    Reply type such as NO_EXCEPTION_AND_FORWARD that
    indicates the first request has succeeded and that
    subsequent requests can use the supplied forward IOR.
