CORBA26 — simple ELEMENT definition

  • Key: CORBA26-35
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3926
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Open Networks Engineering ( Jean-Christophe Dubois)
  • Summary:

    I have a question about the property.dtd file provided with the CCM spec.

    in this file "simple" is described as follow:

    <!ELEMENT simple
    ( description?
    , value
    , choices?
    , defaultvalue?
    ) >

    This seems to indicate that a "simple" element has to have a value in the
    file. Therefore it is not clear how usefull is the optional "defaultvalue"
    field. It also means that if the component or assembly provider wants to
    provide the CPF files with the CCD and CAD files it has to put values into
    them instead of just setting the default value. Obviously the best thing to
    do would be to repeat the default value into the value but it seems strange
    to me. The point is that if there is a default value provided the value
    doesn't seem to be mandatory.

    Also, in a way similar to the CAD file, where placement information are
    added at deployment time, we may want to enable the component/assembly
    provider to provide CPF skeleton files together with the CCD files and
    skeleton CAD files. In this case the "simple" element may not contain any

    I propose to replace this definition with:

    <!ELEMENT simple
    ( description?
    , value?
    , choices?
    , defaultvalue?
    ) >

    Any thought
