CORBA24 — Chunked GIOP marshalling for variable-length types

  • Key: CORBA24-138
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1677
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: Following the discussion of valuetype chunking in the OBV group, I"ve
    been thinking that the arguments advanced for it really apply to all
    the other variable-length types in CORBA (sequences and strings) as
    well as to OBV value types, and wonder if we might try a small change
    to the marshalling rules.

    Currently, we marshal a string (say) by sending the length of the
    string followed by the bytes of the string. If we don"t know the
    string"s length in advance, say because we are reading it from stdin
    or a subprocess, we need to buffer it in memory and send it as one big
    thing. That"s inefficient.
