CORBA24 — Wrong minor code specified in Chapter 13

  • Key: CORBA24-160

  • Summary:

    In document ptc/00-03-02 on page 13-30 in the last bullet on that page it says: "If a system
    exception is raised , it shall be BAD_PARAM with an OMG standard minor code of 1".

    This cannot be right because the OMG standard minor code of 1 for BAD_PARAM is assigned to "failure
    to register, unregister or lookup value factory."

    I recommend that we change this minor code to a new one that is properly allocated with the
    associated text that reads something like: "Service context not understood". I am still wondering
    though why BAD_PARAM is the correct exception to raise. Wouldn't BAD_CONTEXT be more appropriate?

    In any case we have to change the minor code, even if we cannot make up our minds about which
    exception.
