CORBA24 — how are valid ORBids determined

  • Key: CORBA24-81
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3443
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Cisco Systems ( Paul Kyzivat)
  • Summary:

    Section 4.5.1 of the CORBA core document explains the ORBid argument to
    ORBinit. However, it is sufficiently vague to present implementation and
    usage problems.

    It says:

    "All ORBid strings other than the empty string are allocated
    by ORB administrators and are not managed by the OMG."

    It fails to define ORB administrator. This administrator could be the
    developer of the application calling the ORB, or it could be the
    administrator of the machine on which the ORB will run, or it could be the
    developer of the ORB itself. Each answer to this question may result in a
    different mechanism for determining if a supplied ORBid is valid.
