Issues Descriptions

The class shall implement the IEquatable interface, where T is the corresponding class name.

  • Status: open  
  • Source: Objective Interface Systems ( Chuck Abbott)
  • Summary:

    This should be changed to a "may" or a "could". Shall seems overly prescriptive.

    How could a compliant implementation of Equals<T> be distinguished from Equals(Object) from the callers/users perspective?

Use of annotations as part of IDL example do not provide a clean example

  • Status: open  
  • Source: Objective Interface Systems ( Chuck Abbott)
  • Summary:

    The annotations should be covered in a separate section of the document and NOT be part of a clean, canonical example.

    Suggest:
    // IDL
    enum E

    {x, y, z}

    ;

    // C#
    public enum E

    { x, y, z }

    ;

    Also should enums inherit uint?

Use of anonymous array type in array section

  • Status: open  
  • Source: Objective Interface Systems ( Chuck Abbott)
  • Summary:

    Anonymous types should be moved to their own section

    Suggest:

    //IDL
    typedef long myLongArray[2][3];

    // C# example

A canonical example for sequences is missing

  • Status: open  
  • Source: Objective Interface Systems ( Chuck Abbott)
  • Summary:

    Beside basic types no other canonical example is included. I suggest removing the basic types and having one example.

    // IDL
    struct foo

    {...};
    typedef sequence<foo> fooSeq;

    // C#
    class fooSeq : IDL:ISequences<foo> {...}

    ;

    Something like this.
