        Description



        Name: mc17762 Date: 06/11/2001


        The javax.rmi.CORBA.ValueHandler implementation in JDK 1.3.1 is known

        to be broken to Sun. In particular it doesn't handle the following:

        1. Recursive references (sun bug id #4414154)

        2. Java classes with char fields - the wrong type code is sent.

        3. PutFields/GetFields

        4. writeUTF/readUTF (currently an urgent Java to IDL issue)


        Items 1-3 have been fixed in the Merlin release but we urgently

        require these fixes in JDK 1.3.1. The reasoning is that the

        implementation of the ValueHandler involves writing native code

        and it is therefore very difficult for us to write our own and

        support multiple platforms. If the JDK 1.3.1 implementation

        of ValueHandler is used then it is impossible to be J2EE 1.3

        or EJB 2.0 compliant because of the above issues.
