CORBA34 — Narrowing from abstract interfaces

  • Key: CORBA34-388
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1382
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: It has been pointed out to me that we have no way of narrowing
    from abstract interfaces to non-abstract interfaces and value
    classes. In Java, the helper"s narrow method has a signature of
    org.omg.CORBA.Object, so it cannot take an abstract interface
    type. In C++, the generated classes for abstract interfaces
    have an _narrow method with the right signature (taking an
    AbstractBase_ptr), but generated classes for values and regular
    interfaces don"t have such a method. It seems like we would
    need to add overloaded narrow methods in all these places to
    make this work as envisaged in (for example) numbered paragraph
    3 of section 8.3.
