CORBA26 — No Access to event filter form component

  • Key: CORBA26-52
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3998
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Open Networks Engineering ( Jean-Christophe Dubois)
  • Summary:

    As the CCM spec is not giving any mean (or very little) to fill in the
    filterable body part, no services are provided for a component to set its
    event filters when sending or receiving events.

    This seems to be a very usefull service to me for application such as:

    • limiting the number of events emitted by a component based on a config
      parameter (like messages with priority > config value can go out, other are
      discarded. when the config value change at runtime the filter could also
    • filtering events received from a notification channel.

    I agree that these 2 function could be achieve by user code in the component
    but it means that unecessary events are passed between components and the
    netwok load and CPU load is higher than necessary.

    I guess the point I am trying to make is that using the notification service
    without using filters and/or filterable body doesn't seem to make a lot of

    What is the intend of the sepc on this issue?
