CORBA34 — Forward declaration of value boxes

  • Key: CORBA34-377
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1624
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: It is not clear from the spec whether or not value boxes can be
    forward declared, and used recursively. For example,

    value v;
    struct s

    { long s0; v next; }

    ;
    value v s;

    If value boxes are indeed syntactic sugar, the answer should be yes.
    That brings the next question: Does this mean that one can call
    create_box_value_tc(), supplying NULL for the original_type, and
    then later on fill in the member typecode via fill_in_recursive_tc,
    supplying a ValueMemberSeq of length 1?
