CORBA34 — Contradictory sections in the CCM and Lightweight CCM specifications

  • Key: CORBA34-44
  • Legacy Issue Number: 10142
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Micro Focus ( Simon McQueen)
  • Summary:

    I'd like to report an issue that exists in both the CORBA Component Model Specification (formal/06-04-01) and also the Lightweight CORBA Component Model specification (ptc/04-06-10) please.

    In section "6.11 Component Inheritance" of formal/06-04-01 there is the statement : "A derived component type may not directly support an interface."

    This same statement is made in "1.11 Component Inheritance" of ptc/04-06-10 and in "3.17.2.3 Component Inheritance" of the CORBA 3.0.3 spec (04-03-02).

    But, in both "6.3.2.4 Inheritance and supported interfaces" of formal/06-04-01 and "1.3.2.4 Inheritance and supported interfaces" of ptc/04-06-10 there is the following:

    "For a component declaration with the following form:

    component <component_name> : <base_name>
    supports <interface_name_1>, <interface_name_2>

    { … };


    the equivalent interface shall have the following form:
    interface <component_name>
    : <base_name>, <interface_name_1>, <interface_name_2> { … }

    ;"

    The above example is giving equivalent IDL for a declaration that the preceding statements regarding component inheritance say is not permitted. It should presumably be removed.
