<h2>
Supported Specification Details</h2>
Not all of the above specifications are currently implemented in the ORB
in Java[tm] SE 6. The precise list of supported sections is as follows:
<ul>
<li>
CORBA 2.3.1 chapters 1-3 and 6-9</li>

<li>Revised IDL to Java language mapping, section 1.21.8.2, the <code>orb.properties</code>
file.</li>

<li>
CORBA 2.3.1 chapter 4 with the following replacements from the Portable
Interceptors specification:
 <ul>
 <li>section 4.2.3.5 <code>destroy</code></li>
 <li>section 4.5.2 <code>CodeFactory</code> and <code>PICurrent</code> are required</li>
 <li>Section 4.5.3.4 as updated for <code>register_initial_reference</code></li>
 </ul>
</li>

<li>
CORBA 2.3.1 chapter 5 with the following update from the Portable Interceptors
specification:
 <ul>
  <li>
  5.5.2 <code>StringSeq</code> and <code>WStringSeq</code> are required. 
  This adds the following classes to <code>org.omg.CORBA</code>:
    <ul>
    <li><code>StringSeqHolder</code></li>
    <li><code>StringSeqHelper</code></li>
    <li><code>WStringSeqHolder</code></li>
    <li><code>WStringSeqHelper</code></li>
    </ul>
  </li>
 </ul>
</li>

<li>
CORBA 2.3.1 sections 10.6.1 and 10.6.2 are supported for repository IDs.</li>

<li>
CORBA 2.3.1 section 10.7 for <code>TypeCode</code> APIs.</li>

<li>
CORBA 2.3.1 chapter 11, Portable Object Adapter (POA),
with the following updates from the Portable Interceptors specification:
  <ul>
  <li>Section 11.3.7 POAs must preserve all policies</li>
  <li>Section 11.3.8.2 again states that POAs must preserve all policies</li>
  <li>Section 11.3.8.26 <code>POA::id</code> is required.</li>
  </ul>
</li>

<li>
CORBA 2.3.1 chapters 13 and 15 define GIOP 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2. The Java SE 6
ORB fully supports all versions of GIOP, with the exception that the bi-directional
GIOP feature defined in sections 15.8 and 15.9 is not supported.</li>

<li>
All of the Interoperable Naming Service is supported.</li>

<li>
Portable Interceptors section 13.8 (the new
<code>Coder</code>/<code>Decoder</code> interfaces) 
and all of chapter 21 (the interceptor specification).</li>

<li>Section 1.21.8 of the Revised IDL to Java Language
Mapping Specification (ptc/00-11-03) 
has been changed from the version in the 
IDL to Java Language Mapping Specification (ptc/00-01-08).</li>
</ul>

<h2>
Tools</h2>

<ul>
<li>The IDL to Java compiler (<code>idlj</code>) complies with:
  <ul>
  <li>CORBA 2.3.1 chapter 3 (IDL definition)</li>
  <li>CORBA 2.3.1 chapters 5 and 6 (semantics of Value types)</li>
  <li>CORBA 2.3.1 section 10.6.5 (pragmas)</li>
  <li>The IDL to Java mapping specification</li>
  <li>The Revised IDL to Java language mapping specification section 1.12.1 "local interfaces"</li>
  </ul>
</li>

<li>The Java to IDL compiler (the IIOP backend for <code>rmic</code>) complies with:
  <ul>
  <li>CORBA 2.3.1 chapters 5 and 6 (value types)</li>
  <li>The Java to IDL language mapping. Note that this implicitly references
      section 1.21 of the IDL to Java language mapping</li>
  <li>IDL generated by the <code>-idl</code> flag complies with CORBA 2.3.1 chapter 3.</li>
  </ul>
</li>
</ul>
