  1. OMG Issue

CORBA25 — What is the semantics of the DataInputStream::read_*_array() operations?

  • Key: CORBA25-19
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4233
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Floorboard Software ( Yvonne Biggar)
  • Summary:

    The CORBA::DataInputStream abstract valuetype has operations like:

    void read_boolean_array( inout BooleanSeq seq,
    in unsigned long offset,
    in unsigned long length);

    However, the spec says nothing about whether the provided sequence must
    already have sufficient length to satisfy the offset+length or whether
    the operation will extend the sequence to fit.

  • Disposition: Resolved — CORBA 2.5
  • Disposition Summary:

    Clarify that the operations are expected to extend the sequence to fit
