CORBA34 — Inconsisten IDL in the Minimum CORBA chapter

  • Key: CORBA34-221
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4216
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: University of California, Irvine ( Carlos O'Ryan)
  • Summary:

    Section 23.14 of the CORBA/IIOP 2.4.1 specification lists the
    complete IDL for a minimumCORBA implementation. However, the text in
    the chapter and the IDL are inconsistent, for example, section 23.4.2
    reads:

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ---------------
    The is_a operation is omitted so as not to introduce a requirement
    either for holding

    detailed type information in the object reference or for getting type
    information over

    the wire. Instead, minimumCORBA relies on design time resolution of type
    checking

    issues.

    The non_existent operation is omitted, because of the design philosophy
    of making

    more decisions statically at design time.

    The create_request operation is omitted, as the Dynamic Invocation
    Interface is

    omitted.
