Detailed Description

Base class for skeletons and servants.

The POA spec requires that all servants inherit from this class' base class.

An instance of a servant class derived from ServantBase initially has a reference count of one. Invoking _add_ref on the servant instance increases its reference count by one. Invoking _remove_ref on the servant instance decreases its reference count by one; if the resulting reference count equals zero, _remove_ref invokes delete on its this pointer in order to destroy the servant. For ORBs that operate in multi-threaded environments, the implementations of _add_ref and _remove_ref that the ServantBase class provides shall be thread-safe.

Like ServantBase supports copy construction and the default assignment operation. Copy construction always sets the reference count of the new servant instance to one. The default assignment implementation merely returns *this and does not affect the reference count.


Constructor & Destructor Documentation

char * TAO_ServantBase::_repository_id ( void  ) [virtual]

Get the repository id.

Implements TAO_Abstract_ServantBase.
