CORBA24 — Marshaling fixed-point decimal types

  • Key: CORBA24-155
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3431
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Oracle ( Stefan Bauer)
  • Summary:

    Looking at formal/99-10-07, 15.3.2.8 which describes marshaling of fixed
    types I ran into a question. The section doesn't mention how to indicate
    the scale of the written decimal.

    My understanding is that the TypeCode of kind fixed, which gets written
    before the value, indicates the maximum number of digits and the maximum
    scale, not what is currently contained in the number. To describe the
    current scale I would expect that a decimal point gets written to the
    stream, just like the decimals into the half-octets as described in
    15.3.2.8.
