CORBA24 — Small optimization for the GIOP header

  • Key: CORBA24-168
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3708
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: University of California, Irvine ( Carlos O'Ryan)
  • Summary:

    I think I found a possible (very minor) optimization for the
    GIOP 1.3 spec, but maybe I'm missing something in GIOP 1.2

    The new <target> field on the RequestHeader_1_2 structure is
    always aligned to a 4 byte boundary, the reserved[3] field ensures
    that. Consequently the discriminant for the TargetAddress union
    does not end on a 4 byte boundary, but will require 2 bytes of padding
    following it, since all the union values in this case start on 4 byte
    boundaries.

    IMHO, using just 1 byte for the reserved[] field, would have
    resulted in more natural alignments. Did I get something wrong here?
    Is this something likely to be fixed in GIOP 1.3?

    Close this issue as too much of a change for this RTF, and add it to the GIOP wish list for future p
