CORBA24 — attributes and system exceptions

  • Key: CORBA24-173
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3219
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Triodia Technologies Pty Ltd ( Michi Henning)
  • Summary:

    The components spec permits attributes to raise user exceptions, to
    bring them in line with operations. That's a really nice idea, but
    raises yet another versioning problem. In particular, no new IDL that
    uses an attribute with a raises clause can be compiled by an older IDL
    compiler. (Simply deleting the raises clause and then compiling with
    an older compiler is risky at best – marshaling code won't in general
    expect to get a user exception in reply to accessing an attribute...)
