CORBA35 — GIOP version 2.0 issue

  • Key: CORBA35-289
  • Legacy Issue Number: 7168
  • Status: open  
  • Source: ( Rebecca Bergersen)
  • Summary:

    The following paragraph raises an interesting issue. If we follow this to the letter

    • since it says that the new version of GIOP is not backward compatible with the
      earlier versions of GIOP, it implicitly appears to make this new GIOP version a
      new "major" version of GIOP. Clearly we need to figure out a way to avoid doing
      this, since creating GIOP version 2.0 in this way raises all sorts of other issues.

    From the second paragraph on page 1-30 of the Firewall Final Adopted Spec (ptc/04-04-01):

    This document supercedes the previously adopted CORBA firewall specification. In
    addition, the changes to bi-directional GIOP, specified in Chapter 15, supercede the
    adopted specification for bi-directional GIOP. These specifications are not backwards
    compatible with the previous specifications and they are intended to make it possible
    to create a functional protocol for the interoperation of ORBs and firewalls.
