CORBA24 — Does a value in a valuebox make sense?

  • Key: CORBA24-68
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3220
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Floorboard Software ( Jonathan Biggar)
  • Summary:

    Although legal in the CORBA 2.3 IDL grammar, creating a valuebox of
    another valuebox or valuetype is of dubious use. I can't see why having
    an extra level of indirection here would ever be useful. None of the
    language mappings that have defined mappings for valuebox (C++, Java,
    Ada) address this issue either.

    Does it make sense to disallow valueboxing valueboxes or valuetypes?
