FTAM — Why does File derive from PropertySetDef?

  • Key: FTAM-24
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4409
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: DSTC ( Ted McFadden)
  • Summary:

    The spec states the File interface derives from
    CosProperty::PropertySetDef and lists the properties that can be
    associated with a file: is_directory, creator, size, mod_time,
    create_time, access_rights, name, complete_file_name and num_children.

    Under what circumstances could a client validly change the property
    mode of one of these? A client could certainly change the values of
    some of these but not the modes of the properties themselves.

    Unless an example can be provided that shows a need to modify the
    property mode, File should derive from PropertySet not PropertySetDef.
