CORBA3 — Codeset negotiation and the CODESET_INCOMPATIBLE exception

  • Key: CORBA3-61
  • Legacy Issue Number: 5270
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Floorboard Software ( Jonathan Biggar)
  • Summary:

    1. There's no minor code assigned to the use of CODESET_INCOMPATIBLE
    for a failed codeset negotiation in

    2. There's no indication of what a server should do if the client
    delivers a codeset via a CodeSetContext that the server does not support
    as a transmission codeset). This isn't likely to happen, but we ought
    to close the hole. I propose that we have the server raise
    CODESET_INCOMPATIBLE (with a different minor code from 1) in this case

    3. Would it be a good idea for us to include recommendations on how to
    change a persistent server's native codeset while remaining backwards
    compatible with existing IORs floating around the world with obsolete
    CodeSetComponent data? Or is it too obvious? (Just make sure the new
    server advertises (or at least continues to support) the old native
    codeset as a transmission codeset.)
