MOF14 — Clarify whether null instances are currently valid MOF values

  • Key: MOF14-60
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4418
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: DSTC ( Stephen Crawley)
  • Summary:

    The JMI expert group has identified an anomaly in the MOF spec with respect
    to null instances of Classes. According to the IDL mapping, a null
    instance is a valid value for an Attribute or a Parameter; e.g. paragraph
    2 of section 5.3.4. On the other hand, the Abstract mapping (Chapter 4)
    does not mention null at all. JMI needs to know if null is a valid value
    for a Class instance, in the general case.
