CORBA3 — GIOP 1.2 encoding of wstring

  • Key: CORBA3-40
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4724
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: International Business Machines ( Richard Sitze)
  • Summary:

    [3, Chapter] defines an IDL wstring data type to be a sequence of
    wchars. But the GIOP 1.2 encoding of wstring is defined differently [3,
    Chapter]. A GIOP 1.2 encoded wstring is not a sequence of GIOP 1.2
    encoded wchars.

    Each individually encoded wchar is associated with an octet containing the
    size of the encoded wchar in octets [3, Chapter], whereas an
    encoded wstring is associated with an unsigned long containing the length
    of the entire wstring in octets. Probably [3, Chapter] should
    clearly mention and explain this point with sample layout diagrams of
    appropriately encoded wchars and wstrings.
