CORBA34 — Code Set Conversion on Operations

  • Key: CORBA34-185
  • Legacy Issue Number: 8244
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Motorola ( Gary Duzan)
  • Summary:

    The "operation" field in the RequestHeader_1_2 struct is a string,
    which implies that it should be subject to code set conversion. However,
    existing practice seem to be that it is not converted, and there are other
    factors which could make it difficult for implementations to convert it.
    In addition, since the operation name is based on IDL/ASCII, conversion
    doesn't necessarily make sense.

    The easiest remedy would be to specify this as an exception in the
    text of the spec. The "correct" remedy would probably be to change the
    operation field from "string" to "sequence<octet>". This could cause
    problems at some point, but it might not break too much since the CDR
    encodings are the same.
