CPP13 — Exceptions in servant constructors

  • Key: CPP13-22
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3150
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Triodia Technologies Pty Ltd ( Michi Henning)
  • Summary:

    I think we have a defect/omission in the C++ mapping with respect
    to exception safety. Consider a servant class with a constructor:

    class FooImpl : public virtual POA_Foo

    { public: FooImpl(); // ... }


    Consider what happens if FooImpl() throws an exception for some reason.
    By the time FooImpl() runs, the base class constructor POA_Foo() has run
    already. So, when the compiler deals with the exception, it invokes

    The problem arises because, in our implementation at least, ~POA_Foo()
    checks if the reference count is zero and asserts if not.
