CORBA24 — Missing "abstract" in forward declaration

  • Key: CORBA24-40
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3018
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Perot Systems ( Bill Binko)
  • Summary:

    In the new Core 2.3.1 (http://www.omg.org/cgi-bin/doc?formal/99-10-07),
    section 3.7.4 is incorrect in that it does not mention the optional
    "abstract" keyword.

    A forward declaration declares the name of an interface without defining it.
    This
    permits the definition of interfaces that refer to each other. The syntax
    consists simply

    of the keyword interface followed by an <identifier> that names the
    interface. The
    actual definition must follow later in the specification.

    The paragraph is not in sync with the idl grammar in section 3.4

    (6) <forward_dcl> ::= [ "abstract" ] "interface" <identifier>
