CORBA3 — Issue with chunking

  • Key: CORBA3-43
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4806
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Oracle ( Andrew Piper)
  • Summary:

    15.3.4 is silent on the treatment of encapsulations containing chunked valuetypes and in particular chunked valuetypes containing encapsulations containing chunked valuetypes. My understanding of encapsulations leads me to believe that the encapsulation should ignore the current nesting level and chunk length and start from scratch, i.e. chunks within an encapsulation are calculated relative to the start of the encapsulation rather than relative to the stream.

    The reason this needs clarification is because the spec goes to great lengths to make sure chunks are not nested so I think that it would be clearer if this case was specifically discussed. Additionally I don't know whether should include encapsulations in the list of data types that cannot be split across a chunk. In general you would probably have to read the entire encapsulation before you can decode it, so allowing it to be split across chunks might be problematic.
