TRANS13 — Any in transaction context?

  • Key: TRANS13-38
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3593
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Triodia Technologies Pty Ltd ( Michi Henning)
  • Summary:

    the PropagationContext structure contains a sequenct of parent identities,
    followed by an any "implementation_specific_data".

    This seems strange. Why do we have a single Any if we can have any number
    of parent identities, which could conceivably span vendor boundaries?

    It seems that what would really be required is something like this:

    struct ParentInfo

    { TransIdentity id; any implementation_specific_data; }

    typedef sequence<ParentInfo> ParentInfoSeq;

    Could someone help me out here? I don't see how a single any could be
    sufficient if there is to be at least a theoretical chance of interoperating
    across vendor boundaries.
