CORBA3 — Valuetypes supporting forward declared interfaces

  • Key: CORBA3-58
  • Legacy Issue Number: 5100
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Floorboard Software ( Jonathan Biggar)
  • Summary:

    Interfaces cannot inherit from forward declared interfaces and
    valuetypes cannot inherit from forward declared valuetypes, but there is
    no specific prohibition against a valuetype supporting a forward
    declared interface. There should be.

    Proposed resolution:

    Add the following sentence to section 3.8.4:

    "It is illegal for a value type to support a forward-declared interface
    whose definition has not yet been seen."
