Legacy Issue Number: 2004
Summary: An asynchronous action is defined as a request where the sending object does not pause to wait for results. Synonym: asynchronous request [OMA].
1) What results?
In the OMA v3 (June 13 1995), it is said on p. 78 that
an asynchronous request has no response (hence no results).
So, soes "results" means "response", or something else ?
2) The OMA speaks also of a deferred synchronous request –
proceed after sending request; claim reply later).
The synonym used is confusing since the OMA has a concept of
deferred synchronous request in which the sending object does
not pause to wait for results (proceed after sending request;
claim reply later).
3) In fact, my understanding is that the sending object does not
even pause to wait for the receiving object to be notified of
the request. The definition is silent about this.
