CORBA35 — OBV TypeCode parameters wrong

  • Key: CORBA35-360
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1676
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: Section 5.9.7 of orbos/98-01-18 says that the TypeCode parameters for both
    tk_value and tk_value_box start with a string which is the type"s
    repository ID. Why? For everything except tk_interface, the repository ID
    is not visible as a parameter. I believe these parameter lists should not
    include repository IDs to make them consistent with the others.

    I assume that the

    {member_name, TypeCode}

    pairs in the tk_value parameter
    list should appear in the order of declaration of the members in the
    valuetype. This is not stated anywhere.

    The visibility of each member should be added to the tk_value parameter
    list. Each entry in the list should contain

    {member_name, TypeCode, short}

    where the short refers to the Visibility of the member.

    The parameter list for tk_value should probably have an additional
    parameter which is the TypeCode of the concrete valuetype base, if any.
