CORBA25 — BAD_OPERATION needs minor code and completion status

  • Key: CORBA25-27
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4285
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Oracle ( Harold Carr)
  • Summary:

    "This indicates that an object reference denotes an existing object,
    but that the object does not support the operation that was invoked."

    This text does not specify a minor code nor a completion status.

    Section (last paragraph) says:

    "If the ServantManager returns the wrong type of Servant, it is
    indeterminate when that error is detected. It is likely to result in a
    BAD_OPERATION with standard minor code 5 or MARSHAL exception at the
    time of method invocation."

    This implies that should specify a '5' for the minor code.

    A specific minor code for this case is necessary since BAD_OPERATION
    may be raised in other contexts (e.g., IDL->Java mapping for union,
    Any, any extraction, ...).

    I am not sure why it says '5' in Is this minor code
    specified somewhere else that I'm missing?

    Assuming that this is underspecified I would suggest:

    1. assigning a minor code for the case discussed in,

    2. making sure that is in sync with that assignment,

    3. specifying a completion status of COMPLETED_NO (since there is no
    way anything could be completed since the call never makes it out of
    the skeleton into the servant).
