- The Binary UNO runtime currently returns no mapping, in case of a identity request
"A". The UNO runtime should return an indentity-mapping in case of an identity request.
- Generic functions, e.g. as in cppuhelper/bootstrap.cxx, currently need to care about the identity of environments, this is cumbersome and leads to duplicate code.
- Compatibility Issues
- The UNO runtime function
void SAL_CALL uno_getMapping(uno_Mapping ** ppMapping, uno_Environment * pFrom, uno_Environment * pTo, rtl_uString * pAddPurpose) SAL_THROW_EXTERN_C();
- returns an identity-mapping, in case pFrom == pTo, instead of NULL.
