CORBA 2.6 NO IDEA Avatar
  1. OMG Issue

CORBA26 — range description in CPF files.

  • Key: CORBA26-34
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3925
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Open Networks Engineering ( Jean-Christophe Dubois)
  • Summary:

    The definition for "choices" is as follow in the properties.dtd file:

    <!ELEMENT choice ( #PCDATA ) >
    <!ELEMENT choices ( choice+ )

    knowing that the PCDATA for choice is supposed to hold one possible value
    for the "simple" if I am right

    I believe this is missing a bit of descriptive power. In case you want to
    specify a range of 100 values you will have to give the 100 different values
    each in its own "choice" element. It is very verbose !!!

    We could add a range ELEMENT to the DTD as follow:

    <!ELEMENT range (value, value)>

    We could then change the choices ELEMENT as follow:

    <!ELEMENT choices ( range | choice )+>

    Any thought.
