CORBA25 — GIOP 1.1 Fragment problem

  • Key: CORBA25-50
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4299
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Floorboard Software ( Jonathan Biggar)
  • Summary:

    There is nothing in the specification that explicitly states whether the
    data in the body of a GIOP 1.1 Fragment message is marshalled relative
    to the Fragment header or relative to the unfragmented message as a

    The restriction in GIOP 1.2 that all fragments but the last must have a
    multiple of 8 bytes, and the careful padding of the GIOP 1.2 Fragment
    header to 16 bytes both strongly suggest that GIOP 1.1 fragments should
    be marshalled only relative to the fragment header.

    Proposed Resolution:

    In section 15.4.9, right after the paragraph that reads:

    "A primitive data type of 8 bytes or smaller should never be broken
    across two

    add the following paragraph:

    In GIOP 1.1, the data in a fragment is marshalled with alignment
    relative to its position in the fragment, not relative to its position
    in the whole unfragmented message.
