  1. OMG Issue

CORBA35 — Messaging Routing Protocol is broken for GIOP 1.0 & 1.1

  • Key: CORBA35-197
  • Legacy Issue Number: 5662
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Floorboard Software ( Jonathan Biggar)
  • Summary:

    It is impossible to use the routing protocol to communicate with servers
    that only support GIOP 1.0 or 1.1, because the information contained in
    struct MessageBody does not contain enough information to determine the
    alignment requirements of the contents of body member. The GIOP 1.0 &
    1.1 RequestHeader struct contain an octet sequence for principle as the
    last member, and specify no alignment requirements for the message
    body. Thus, it is impossible for the final router to determine the
    proper alignment for the message body when marshalling a GIOP Request
    message for delivery to the target object.

    The same problem applies to the Response message.
