  1. OMG Issue

CORBA34 — Mapping from -ORBxxx to Java properties does not work for -ORBInitRef

  • Key: CORBA34-197
  • Legacy Issue Number: 6007
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Syracuse University ( Joncheng Kuo)
  • Summary:

    The CORBA 3.0 spec adds the following note in Section 4.5.1: ORB Initialization.

    "Whenever an ORB_init argument of the form -ORBxxx is specified, it is understood that the argument may be represented in different ways in different languages. For example, in Java -ORBxxx is equivalent to a property named org.omg.CORBA.ORBxxx."

    The approach stated in the above note does not work for -ORBInitRef. For example, if you have
    -ORBInitRef NameService=URL,
    you cannot translate the above arguments into a property named "org.omg.CORBA.ORBInitRef" because there can be only one property of this name and there may be many different services. This issue was slightly cover by Issue 3643 (java-rtf), which was not resolved. This issue becomes obvious and important because the note added in the CORBA 3.0 spec.

    Proposed solution: Arguments like "-ORBInitRef id=url" should be equivalent to a property named "org.omg.CORBA.ORBInitRef.id" with value "url".
