CORBA26 — Components FTF: TypeCodeFactory

  • Key: CORBA26-65
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4140
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: ZeroC ( Bernard Normier)
  • Summary:

    The third part of the adopted CCM submission (orbos/99-07-03)
    moves all the create_..._tc operations from the ORB interface
    to a new PIDL interface, CORBA::TypeCodeFactory.

    This change breaks source-compatibility: source code that creates
    typecodes with a pre-CORBA 3.0 ORB will need to be updated to use
    a CORBA 3.0 ORB with such a TypeCodeFactory interface.

    And there is no clear benefit from this update:

    • ORB is still PIDL – it even creates an additional PIDL
    • type code kinds are not more extensible (TCKind is still an

    I suggest to undo this update, i.e. keep the create_..._tc
    operations on the CORBA::ORB interface.
