CORBA24 — Semantics for DynAny::equal underspecified

  • Key: CORBA24-67
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3205
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Floorboard Software ( Jonathan Biggar)
  • Summary:

    CORBA 2.3.1, 9.2.3.5 says: "Two DynAny values are equal if their
    TypeCodes are equivalent and, recursively, all component DynAnys have
    equal values."

    We already added text in the Y2K RTF to clarify equal for object
    references & typecodes, but this leaves an exercise for the reader to
    figure out what equal means for some IDL types, particularly fixed,
    sequences & valuetypes. I believe that an experienced person thinking
    about it can come up with the correct rules, but why leave it up to
    mistaken interpretation.
