CORBA24 — interop issue: what system exceptions may be raised on GIOP 1.0?

  • Key: CORBA24-2

  • Summary:

    Summary: An issue we"ve run across is enumerating the set of system exceptions
    that are valid to be passed via GIOP 1.0 (and similarly for 1.1, and
    1.2). This is important for implementations of GIOP, which are, for
    instance, attempting to map wire exceptions to C++ exceptions, and is
    also important for packet-sniffing implementations.

    Since many conforming GIOP 1.0 implementations were built (and bought)
    and incorporated into products before various CORBA system exceptions
    were added to the Core, it seems that servers should not raise `newer"
    exceptions back to older clients – that is, clients speaking GIOP 1.0.
    Instead, they should map those `newer" exceptions to UNKNOWN, I"d guess.
