CORBA24 — special-casing TypeCode is unnecessary

  • Key: CORBA24-62
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3181
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Progress Software ( Steve Vinoski)
  • Summary:

    The resolution to issue 3048 special-cases TypeCode in a manner that
    essentially makes it a keyword. First of all, given that TypeCode lives in
    the CORBA module, and thus is properly named CORBA::TypeCode, this is
    highly irregular because it means we have a scoped keyword. Second, this
    change also significantly breaks working products – it adopts
    implementation details of certain compilers and rules out already-working
    implementation approaches of other existing compilers. The OMG is not
    supposed to dictate implementation. Finally, the rationale for the changes
    made for 3048 centered around unquantifiable performance issues that IMO
    affect only a very small minority of applications.
