  1. OMG Issue

CORBA34 — Section 22.2.4.6 interface RelativeRoundtripTimeoutPolicy

  • Key: CORBA34-210
  • Legacy Issue Number: 6424
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Borland Software Corporation ( Wolfgang Haefelinger)
  • Summary:

    [..] It is used to indicate the relative amount
    of time for which a Request or its corresponding
    Reply may be delivered. After this amount of
    time, the Request is cancelled (if a response
    has not yet been received from the target) or
    the Reply is discarded (if the Request had
    already been delivered and a Reply returned from
    the target) [..]
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Question:

    • What is the precise meaning of "Request is
      cancelled"?

    Does it mean that client ORB just gives up or
    does it mean that client tries, in kind of best
    effort semantics, to cancel request on server?

    If this cancellation fails, how will client user
    be informed about this? By a minor code in
    thrown Timeout exception?

    Is it possible to clarify this?
