CORBA26 — CCM: Meaning of "exposed" scopes unclear.

  • Key: CORBA26-79
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4579
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Humboldt-Universitaet ( Martin von Loewis)
  • Summary:

    ccm/01-08-04 says

    "When a name scope is imported, the names of the enclosing scopes in
    the fully-qualified pathname of the enclosing scope are exposed within
    the context of the importing specification, but their contents are not
    imported. An importing specification may not re-define or re-open a
    name scope which has been exposed (but not imported) by an import

    Now consider the following "well-defined set of IDL specs":

    module X {
    module Y {
    module Z{};

    and the following import statement

    import X::Y;

    Now, it appears that this declaration would make it ill-formed to

    module X{
    interface another_interface{};

    since "X" is an exposed scope. That appears to be inconsistent, since
    clearly, reopening "X" is allowed without the import statement.
