[omniORB] problems with omnipy and argument types
Mon, 12 Feb 2001 13:39:52 -0400
I've just started using omnipy and I think it is great so far, but I'm
having a bit of trouble with a call on one of my interfaces. The IDL is
below (note that I've just shown what is necessary in the context of the
problem I am having):
unsigned long dMonth;
unsigned long dDay;
unsigned long dYear;
unsigned long tHour;
unsigned long tMinute;
unsigned long tSecond;
... other operations ...
void log(in unsigned long seqNumber, in DateTime dt, in string
machine, in string category, in string eventText);
}; // End Reporting.
The server that implements the EventLogger is written in C++ and is
constantly running. It is implemented as a persistent object. I've written
clients in C++ that use it with no problem. When using python, I can get
trivial operations to work on it (some basic get/set operations), but I
cannot get the log operation to work. I always get a BAD_PARAM error and it
does not make sense to me why I would get that. Here is my python code:
-------- BEGIN SCRIPT ------------------
from omniORB import CORBA
.... Orb initialization, retrieving an ior for the EventLogger (this part
el = obj._narrow(Reporting.EventLogger)
if el is None:
print "Error" # this does not get printed, so the narrow worked.
.... Some trivial operations on el work ...
dt = Reporting.DateTime(Reporting.Date(1, 2, 3), Reporting.Time(1, 2, 3))
# a hypothetical date and time.
machine = "My Machine"
category = "Test"
event = "Just a test event"
el.log(1, dt, machine, category, event)
.... This throws a BAD_PARAM error and this does not make any sense to me
whatsoever why it would do so.
-------- END SCRIPT ------------------
Can someone point out what is wrong with my python code?
