CORBA26 — Implied IDL for interfaces in modules

  • Key: CORBA26-9
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4719
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Zuehlke Engineering ( Frank Pilhofer)
  • Summary:

    The Messaging Programming Model introduces implied interfaces. These
    interfaces have the same name as the original interface, but with an
    AMI_ prefix.

    What happens if the original interface is in a module? Will AMI_ be
    prepended to the unqualified name, or to the absolute name? E.g.

    module Stock {
    interface StockManager

    { ... }


    In this case, will the absolute name of the ReplyHandler be
    ::AMI_Stock::StockManagerHandler, or ::Stock::AMI_StockManagerHandler ?

    All examples in the spec (formal/2001-09-26) are outside any module.
    Since it never talks about absolute names, but only of names, it might
    indicate that it should be the latter (AMI_ prepended to the unquali-
    fied name).

    However, the precedent for prefixes, the POA, always prepends the POA_
    prefix to the absolute name, and I would find it confusing if the AMI_
    prefix was used differently.
