CORBA24 — Minor code allocation inconsistency

  • Key: CORBA24-141
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3040
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: International Business Machines ( Russell Butek)
  • Summary:

    CORBA 2.3, section 15.4.3.2 - Reply Body - states:

    "A vendor (or group of vendors) wishing to define a specific set of system
    exception minor codes should obtain a unique VMCID from the OMG, and then
    define up to 4096 minor codes for each system exception."

    Section 3.17 - Standard Exceptions - states:

    "Within a vendor assigned space, the assignment of values to minor codes is
    left to the vendor."

    The first dictates that minor code numbers are in the space of each
    Standard Exception. Ie, the true # of minor codes is (4096 times
    #-of-Standard-Exceptions). But the second implies that vendors can
    allocate their minor codes however they wish.

    So which is it? The first mandate (if you read it as a mandate) or the
    second freedom?
