CORBA3 — Inconsitent exception handling with find_POA & unknown_adapter

  • Key: CORBA3-57
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4982
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Floorboard Software ( Jonathan Biggar)
  • Summary:

    I think we totally messed up the resolution to issue 3740. We added the
    following text (circa CORBA 2.5) to

    "If unknown_adapter returns FALSE then find_POA raises
    AdapterNonExistent. If
    unknow_adapter raises any system exception then find_POA passes through
    system exception it gets back from unknown_adapter."

    [ There is also a typo in this text: "unkown_adapter".]

    and this text to

    "If find_POA receives a system exception in response to a call to
    on a POA, find_POA raises OBJ_ADAPTER system exception with standard
    code 1."

    In the former, system exceptions raised by unknown_adapter are to be
    passed through unchanged by find_POA. In the latter, system exceptions
    raised by unknown_adapter are to be replaced with OBJ_ADAPTER(1).

    I think the former behavior is more correct, since it preserves the
    original exception and doesn't throw away useful debugging information.
