IDL41 — Map parameter types too restrictive

  • Key: IDL41-13
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: THALES ( Virginie Watine)
  • Summary:

    Currently maps are defined to be parameterized only by "simple types". This means that anonymous types cannot be provided even if they are supported in the profile.
    This is not consistent with sequence definition where anonymous types can be used (provided that BB Anoymous Types be part of the profile)
    => In rule (198), <simple_type_spec> should be replaced with <type_spec>

  • Disposition: Resolved — IDL 4.1
  • Disposition Summary:

    Change <simple_type_spec> to <type_spec> in map definition

    With this modification, maps will accept anonymous types in parameters (provided that BB Anonymous Types is included)
    This is more consistent with sequences (as said in the text).
