CORBA24 — IDL format for RepositoryId

  • Key: CORBA24-184
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4035
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: UBS ( Karsten Starr)
  • Summary:

    Following statement in CORBA V2.3 (06/1999),
    P10-39, Chapter 10.6.1, OMG IDL Format concerning
    the OMG IDL format for Repository IDs:

    >> The RepositoryId consists of three components, separated by
    colons, (":")

    The first component is the format name, "IDL."

    The second component is a list of identifiers, separated by
    "/" characters.

    These identifiers are arbitrarily long sequences of alpha-
    betic, digit, underscore ("_"), hyphen ("-"), and period (".")
    characters. Typically, the first identifier is a unique prefix,
    and the rest are OMG IDL Identifiers that make up the scoped
    name of the definition. <<

    There are two issues here:

    • Firstly I propose to change >>"IDL."<< into >>"IDL".<<
    • Furthermore, I propose be more specific on the definition
      of the Repository Id. The above definition does not
      exclude a RepositoryId in the following style (which
      in my opinion does not make sense and effects inter-
      operability between ORBs): "IDL:/A/B:1.0"
      A regular expression could clarifiy this issue:
