CORBA26 — Is GIOP 1.x sustainable any more?

  • Key: CORBA26-84
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2941
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: ( Adrian St. John)
  • Summary:

    Is GIOP 1.x really sustainable any more?
    We've got implementation nightmares because:

    • Features haven't been thought through properly
      eg Fragment in 1.1, BiDir in 1.2
    • Simple backwards compatibility is being lost
      eg ReplyHeader v1.2 has fields in completely different places to
      previous versions, albeit for very good reasons.
    • The TypeCode CDR version problems
    • Not enough information in certain messages
      eg MessageError can't indicate which message may have caused a
      problem, and certainly can't describe in what way there was an error.
