DDSXTY14 — TypeLookup IDL Inconsistency

  • Key: DDSXTY14-39
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Object Computing, Inc. - OCI ( Mr. Frederick Hornsey)
  • Summary:

    TypeLookup IDL in contains the following unsigned long constants in IDL:

    // computed from @hashid("getTypes")
    const unsigned long TypeLookup_getTypes_HashId = 0x018252d3;
    // computed from @hashid("getDependencies");
    const unsigned long TypeLookup_getDependencies_HashId = 0x05aafb31;

    However later in the IDL two unions called TypeLookup_Call and TypeLookup_Return which use those constants as branches are discriminated with a long. Since long is apparently specified by the RPC spec, then the type of the constants should be changed to long to match the unions.

    Other issues in this IDL:

    • TypeLookup_getTypes_Result and TypeLookup_getTypeDependencies_Result both use DDS_RETCODE_OK as an IDL constant. It should be DDS::RETCODE_OK (from the DDS core spec 2.3.3)
    • TypeLookup_Call and TypeLookup_Return both use IDL constants that end in the word "Hash" but should match the ones above (they are missing "Id")
    • TypeLookup_Reply contains a member of type RequestHeader which should be ReplyHeader
