CORBA25 — Inconsistent text for unknown system exception

  • Key: CORBA25-15
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4189
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: IONA ( Mark Spruiell)
  • Summary:

    In document 01-01-01, there are the following paragraphs which seem
    contrary to one another regarding the minor code to be used when an
    ORB receives an unrecognized system exception.

    Vendors may define non-standard system exceptions, but these exceptions are
    discouraged because they are non-portable. A non-standard system exception, when
    passed to an ORB that does not recognize it, shall be presented by that ORB as an
    UNKNOWN standard system exception. The minor code and completion status from
    the unrecognized exception shall be preserved in the UNKNOWN exception. Exception
    Exceptions are encoded as a string followed by exception members, if any. The string
    contains the RepositoryId for the exception, as defined in the Interface Repository
    chapter. Exception members (if any) are encoded in the same manner as a struct.
    If an ORB receives a non-standard system exception that it does not support, or a user
    exception that is not defined as part of the operation's definition, the exception shall be
    mapped to UNKNOWN, with standard minor code set to 2 for a system exception, or
    set to 1 for a user exception.
