CORBA34 — 69.3.2.15 The implementation Element, pages 69-478/479

  • Key: CORBA34-103
  • Legacy Issue Number: 5515
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Raytheon ( Jerry Bickle)
  • Summary:

    Implementation Element Cardinality. Why does it make sense to have an empty
    implementation or to allow multiple elements such as code, description,
    humanlanguage, or to have no code? Suggested changes are to place the
    correct
    cardinality on the implementation elements. The suggested elements
    cardinality
    changes will make parsing the XML much simpler and reduce code footprint,
    and the
    XML more understandable.

    Current Format

    <!ELEMENT implementation
    ( description

    code
    compiler
    dependency
    descriptor
    extension
    programminglanguage
    humanlanguage
    os
    propertyfile
    processor
    runtime
    )* >
    <!ATTLIST implementation
    id ID #IMPLIED
    variation CDATA #IMPLIED >

    Suggested New Format for implementation

    • Zero or one description, the CAD and CORBA Components DTDs define the
      description this way.
    • Zero or one property file reference. Why are multiple property files
      needed?
    • One code element is required for a given implementation
    • Zero or one complier element. A given source code element is compiled
      by a
      specific compiler. Specifying the compiler is optional.
    • Zero or one programminglanguage element. Specifying the
      programminglanguage is optional.
    • Zero or one humanlanguage element. Specifying the humanlanguage is
      optional.
    • Zero or more dependencies for a specific implementation.
    • Zero or more descriptors for a specific implementation. An
      implementation
      may contain multiple different components.
    • Zero or more runtimes. A given code element may be compatible with
      multiple runtime environments.
    • Zero or more os. A given code element may be compatible with multiple
      operating systems.
    • Zero or more processors. A given code element may be compatible with
      multiple processors.
    • Zero or more extensions.
