CORBA3 — ORBInitInfo::arguments() underspecified

  • Key: CORBA3-91
  • Legacy Issue Number: 5690
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Floorboard Software ( Jonathan Biggar)
  • Summary:

    21.7.2.3 states:

    "This attribute contains the arguments passed to ORB_init. They may or
    may not contain the ORB's arguments."

    First, what good does this do? A portable application can't depend on
    anything useful being returned by this attribute.

    This should be changed to state that ORBInitInfo::arguments() returns
    the original unmodified argv parameter that was passed to ORB_init.


    Second, this attribute really ought to be read-write, so that an
    Interceptor implementation can find and strip out arguments that are
    intended for the Interceptor.

    Alternatively, we should specify a standard prefix for arguments that
    are recognized and processed by interceptors, so that the ORB and client
    code can be explicitly coded to recognize and ignore them.
