CORBA34 — new_target

  • Key: CORBA34-323
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2648
  • Status: open

  • Summary:

    Summary: Section 4.7.4 - description of new_target operation.

    The first para states:

    "The new_target operation informs the firewall that it should prepare itself
    to
    receive requests destined for the specified target. The object returned
    from this
    operation is the destination on the firewall to which a request on the
    target should be
    sent i.e. the object_key in the return object should be used in the GIOP
    request header."

    and the last para says:

    "The object returned by the new_target operation must contain an object key
    which
    allows the proxy to uniquely identify the target. A client is not required
    to open a new
    connection to the proxy server, even when the target object(s) are located
    in different
    servers."

    The last sentence implies that the IOR returned from the new_target has the
    same host/port number as the GIOPProxy. This may not be true. For example if
    a firewall is load balancing across ports and network interfaces, the
    host/ports may be differnt, and in this situation a new connection is
    required.
