CORBA34 — Targets of Export and Offer Policies incompletely specified

  • Key: CORBA34-281
  • Legacy Issue Number: 7315
  • Status: open  
  • Source: bergersen.org ( Rebecca Bergersen)
  • Summary:

    PROBLEM:
    The target (ORB, POA, object, thread) of the Export and Offer policies and the side of the connection involved is incompletely specified.

    RECOMMENDATION:
    Define the two sides of a connection as the connection 'Initiator' and connection 'Acceptor'. The usual terms of 'client' (Initiator) and 'server' (Acceptor) become confusing in a bi-directional situation. Given those terms for each side, specify that the Export and Offer policies are used on the Initiator side. Specify that the Export policy may be applied to the ORB, the POA and/or to the thread. Specify that the Offer policy can be applied to the Initiator ORB, to a reference in the Initiator for an object in the Acceptor, or to a thread in the Initiator ORB.
