CORBA3 — Repository ID in nil references

  • Key: CORBA3-32
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4334
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Triodia Technologies Pty Ltd ( Michi Henning)
  • Summary:

    on page 13-17, the spec says:

    A Null TypeID is the only mechanism that can be used to represent
    the type CORBA::Object.

    This is in conflict with the information provided on page 15-28:

    When a reference to a base Object is encoded, there are two allowed
    encodings for the Repository ID: either ""
    or "" may be used.

    I would suggest to strike the sentence on page 13-17 because that is a
    historical hangover.

    Also, the entire section talks about "type IDs", when what it really means
    are "repository IDs". I would suggest to hunt down all uses of "type ID"
    and to replace them with "repository ID", because that's the correct
