CORBA34 — p.6.68 boxed values of complex types map to same type

  • Key: CORBA34-421
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1256
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: p.6.68: It is a bit awkward that boxed values of "complex" types map
    all to the same type (i.e., as for typedefs, the value"s name appears
    only in holder/helper classes), and that each boxed value of "basic" type
    maps to its individual class. Instead, boxed values of basic types
    could map to the corresponding java.lang.* class, e.g.
    java.lang.Integer, java.lang.Short, etc. An issue with this approach
    is that java.lang.Short and java.lang.Byte are not defined in JDK
    1.0.2. I doubt however this JDK is still much in use; for its users,
    short and octet could optionally map to e.g. CORBA.ShortValue and
    CORBA.ByteValue (inspired from CORBA::StringValue).
