PSS — New PSS Issue: Is the PSDL Grammar Too Complicated?

  • Key: PSS-25
  • Legacy Issue Number: 4040
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    When examining the PSDL grammar in the Persistent State Service,
    orbos/99-07-07, I came too the conclusion that it is over-specified.
    Looking through the IDL grammar, great care is taken to avoid
    overexpansion of the declarator productions. In particular, semantic
    rules are employed to restrict the use of scoped names (acting as types)
    in those situations where a particular use may be invalid. These rules
    could be applied in the same way to the declarator syntax for state
    members. Thus, there is no need to restrict the grammar to "abstract
    storagetype" types for declarators; any scoped name should work as
    elsewhere. Certainly, however, there should be semantic rules that only
    abstract storagetype types may be used in an abstract storagetype
