CORBA3 — Type code creation

  • Key: CORBA3-97
  • Legacy Issue Number: 5771
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Triodia Technologies Pty Ltd ( Michi Henning)
  • Summary:

    The core spec says in section 4.11.3:

    Typecode creation operations that take name as an argument shall check that
    the name
    is a valid IDL name or is a null string.

    This is oxymoronic: we are talking about IDL here; IDL does not have the
    concept of
    a null string. If anything, we can say "empty string".

    Looking at this bit of spec, it would appear that a call such as

    orb->create_interface_tc(someRepId, 0);

    is legal. But that doesn't make sense because it's illegal to pass null
    across IDL interfaces in C++ (or null references as strings in Java).
