CORBA24 — Valuetype in anys. Unmarshaling problem?

  • Key: CORBA24-156
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3434
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Borland Software Corporation ( Vijaykumar Natarajan)
  • Summary:

    There seems to be a problem with valuetypes contained in anys.

    Consider the following:
    valuetype A

    { A a; }


    valuetype B : A

    { private long long x; }


    If an instance w/ the following structure:

    A { a = {B { x = {<value>}}}}

    is inserted into an any and the any is received by an event service. Given that
    the event service has no type information of the B encoded inside of A, the
    event service has no way of knowing how big A.a (an instance of B) is and how
    many bytes it needs to read (unless it contacts an IR)

    Am I missing something here?
