TRANS13 — ots-rtf: OTS and location transparency

  • Key: TRANS13-22
  • Legacy Issue Number: 2933
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Triodia Technologies Pty Ltd ( Michi Henning)
  • Summary:

    Page 10-67 of the spec says:

    The ORB will invoke the sender callbacks only when a transactional
    operation is issued for an object in a different process. Objects
    within the same process implicitly share the same transaction
    context. The receiver callbacks are invoked when the ORB receives
    a transactional request from a different process.

    There are a number of problems with this paragraph:

    1) "Different process" is a rather ill-defined idea. Some environments
    have no such thing as a process.

    2) The requirement breaks location transparency big-time,
    and it appears to be unimplementable in the general case:
