CPP12 — Valuebox for object reference underspecified

  • Key: CPP12-22
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3223
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Floorboard Software ( Jonathan Biggar)
  • Summary:

    The CORBA 2.3 C++ mapping for valueboxes ( does not specify the
    behavior of the constructors, assignment operator and _value modifier
    method with respect to the object reference argument. These methods
    clearly need to call _duplicate on their argument, since the valuebox
    must manage its own memory.


    Add the following paragraph just before the example in

    Value box classes for object reference maintain a private managed copy
    of the object reference. The constructor, assignment operator and
    _value modifier method for these classes call _duplicate on the object
    reference argument, and the destructor calls CORBA::release on the boxed
