CORBA34 — "Safe" keyword identifier issue

  • Key: CORBA34-425
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1251
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: Above rules seem to imply that the
    "safe" keyword identifier can only occur before the first scoped name in the
    <value_parent_spec>, whereas I think the actual intent is that it can only
    occur before a non-abstract value type, of which there is at most one in the
    list, although it need not be the first. Since this can"t be expressed in the
    rules exactly, I would simply amend the rule to be:

    <value_parent_spec> ::= ":" [ <safe_token> ] <scoped_name>

    { "," [ <safe_token> ] <scoped_name> }

    *

    and simply express the semantic restriction in the text. There already is a
    brief mention of the semantics of the "safe" keyword in section 5.3.2.5
    "Substitutability Issues". Perhaps another sentence or two would help clarify
    the intended usage.
