CORBA24 — chunked value encoding:

  • Key: CORBA24-147
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3231
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    a chunk can be followed by:

    1. a new chunk (starting with its size tag)
    (1 <= chunk_size_tag < 0x7fffff00
    2. a new value (value_tag | 0 | value_ref)
    (0x7fffff00 <= value_tag <= 0x7fffffff)
    (valueref = 0xffffffff)
    3. an end tag
    (0x80000000 <= end_tag <= 0xffffffff)

    A value indirection and a "top-level" end tag, both have the same tag (0xffffffff).
    Consequently, the 0xffffffff tag marks the end of the current value but it is not clear whether or not a new value (indirection) has started.

    An example where this situation occurs is a ring buffer that is chunked encoded.
