CORBA25 — Inconsistent minor code for MARSHAL

  • Key: CORBA25-30
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4310
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Triodia Technologies Pty Ltd ( Michi Henning)
  • Summary:

    on page 3-23 of section, first bullet point, we find:

    Local types cannot be marshaled and references to local objects
    cannot be converted to strings. Any attempt to marshal a local
    object, such as via an unconstrained base interface, as an Object,
    or as the contents of an any, or to pass a local object to
    ORB::object_to_string, shall result in a MARSHAL system exception
    with OMG minor code 2.
    However, the minor code table, page 4-59, section 4.11.4 shows:

    MARSHAL 1 Unable to locate value factory.
    2 ServerRequest::set_result called before
    ServerRequest::ctx when the operation IDL contains a
    context clause.
    3 NVList passed to ServerRequest::arguments does not
    describe all parameters passed by client.
    4 Attempt to marshal Local object.

    This is inconsisent – the text requires minor code 2, but the table
    requires minor code 4.

    I would suggest to update the first bullet of to require minor code 4,
    in line with what is shown in the table.
