I'm looking for a code review around the following corba changes. It
turns out that we've a few bug fixes in corba area for jdk6 that were
never forward ported to jdk7 or 8. The port is pretty much identical to
what was used in JDK6. Some formatting and diamond operator changes
introduced but that's about it. There were a few bug fixes to follow up
on regressions around the initial fix but this umbrella port should
cover all issues.
The initial bugs fixes were fixed under the "jets" category in the bug
tool and that category entered read only mode over a year ago. Hence the
requirement for a new bug ID.
The main bug fix is 6725987 which is an issue where references to the
ORB were being kept after ORB.destroy was called.
An accompanying CNCtx fix in JDK repo is also made to correct an issue
where the java.naming.corba.orb system property wasn't used correctly.
Corba testsuites run and no issues seen. I've also run some JCK testing
and saw no issues.
The corba codebase code formatting seems to vary quite a bit. I've
reformatted in a small number of areas but the whole corba repo probably
warrants it's own clean up project at a later date.
