Issues Descriptions

Provide a simple sample application

  • Key: CORBARS_-1
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Micro Focus ( Matteo Vescovi)
  • Summary:

    It would be good to show a sample simple application that shows use of the REST mapping as proof of concept of use of the spec.

    While there are fragments sprinkled in the specification document, a simple application would be useful and ease adoption.

Provide example of authentication and security

  • Key: CORBARS_-2
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Micro Focus ( Matteo Vescovi)
  • Summary:

    It would be nice to have some discussion/example in the document for REST authentication and security.

    I think this would help with adoption.

    We propose to extend the InvalidName exception with a "string name" member to simplify analyzing problems when this exception is thrown, the exception will tell at that moment the name that failed

Replace Cookie with a string and use IDL map

  • Status: open  
  • Source: Remedy IT ( Johnny Willemsen)
  • Summary:

    Currently CCM uses a Cookie which is returned from the connect operations which has to be pased with disconnect. This requires the deployment tooling to store this Cookie at deployment for usage later on at teardown. As each connection has a unique string id in the plan we propose to replace the Cookie with the unique string id which is from the deployment plan. With a connect this string is passed with the connect call, later on with disconnect the same string can be passed again. For all calls that retrieve a struct containing a Cookie we propose to replace this with a IDL map with the string as id , the reference as second value.

    These changes make deployment logic/tooling much easier, also now a IDL map is used which makes user code more clean instead of emulating a map with a sequence with a struct where the user has to search themselves.

Add CDR marshaling support for IDL4 int8/uint8/map/biset/bitfield/bitmask

  • Status: open   Implementation work Blocked
  • Source: Remedy IT ( Johnny Willemsen)
  • Summary:

    IDL4 extends the IDL type system with int8/uint8/map/bitset/bitfield/bitmask, these all could be useful at the CORBA layer so to have guaranteed interoperability CORBA should define the CDR marshaling support for these new types
