NAM — INS stringfied name, etc.

  • Key: NAM-38
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3324
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: ( Euji Yano)
  • Summary:

    "Several points in the INS specification are not clear to me. I'd like to
    confirm that my understanding of these points is valid.

    I investigated the INS FTF document (ptc/99-12-03) and associated errata
    (ab/00-01-04). However, I am still not sure about the details in section
    " Default Resolution Order", the minor codes values in section
    "13.6.7 Object URLs" and the details of stringified names specified in
    section "4.5 Stringified Names" in the specification. The unclear points are:

    1) Assume that a client program calls ORB_init with ORBInitRef (without
    ORBDefaultInitRef), and then calls CORBA::ORB::resolve_initial_references.
    A pre-configured ORB setting is used.

    If "1. Resolve with -ORBInitRef for this <ObjectID>" fails for any reason,
    must "2. Resolve with pre-configured ORB setting" be performed?

    I don't think so. The Client program wanted an IOR that is required by an
    ORB::init parameter. If the ORB returns a pre-configured IOR, then the
    client can't know if the returned IOR is the one that the client wanted or
    pre-configured IOR.

    2) Is there any value defined in the specification (or other specification)
    about the BAD_PARAM minor codes for "BadScheme", "BadAddress" and

    When exceptions are raised with these minor codes, exactly what's wrong
    with the associated URL?

    3) If an escaped character in a string name is not one of '\', '/' or '.',
    is the string name valid?

    I believe it is valid. "\A\B" should be changed into "AB".

    4) If a string name is empty, such as "", is the string name invalid?

    I believe it is invalid. If it is valid, what is the string length?

    5) If the first character of string name is '/' or string name is just "/",
    is the string name invalid?

    I believe it is invalid.

    If it is valid, is "" interpreted as:
    [0] "AAA", "aaa"
    [1] "", ""
    [2] "BBB", "bbb"

    6) If the last character of string name is the escape character, '\', is
    the string name invalid?

    I believe it is invalid.

    7) If I want to change "
    ", which is not escaped yet, to an escaped string
    name, is the escaped string name "\\\" or "\\\\"? The "\\\" means one
    escape character and two escaped characters '\'. The "\\\\" means two pairs
    of escape character and escaped character '\'.

    I believe that "
    " should be changed to "\\\\".
