Hi,
I am new in IDL/CORBA programming. I have downloaded "idltojava" compiler from the following site:
http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/earlyAccess/jdk12/idltojava.html

I wanted to compile the following StockMarket.idl program but it is giving error. I am working on Windows95.
Please let me know how to fix the problem.
Thanks,
sunanda
*******StockMarket.idl*********
module StockMarket {                                       typedef string StockSymbol;                                      
typedef sequence<StockSymbol> StockSymbolList;                  
                                                                 
interface StockServer {                                          
                                                                 
float getStockValue(in StockSymbol symbol);                      
                                                                 
StockSymbolList getStockSymbols();                              
                                                                 
};                                                              
                                                                 
};

What error did you get?

I compiled under jacorb and it did work.

module StockMarket
{

typedef string StockSymbol;                                      
typedef sequence<StockSymbol> StockSymbolList;                    
                                                                 
  interface StockServer
  {
    float getStockValue(in StockSymbol symbol);                      
    StockSymbolList getStockSymbols();                                
  };                                                                
};


There is nothing wrong with your idl.

Also what version of the idltojava do you use?

Cheers,
  Nik

Hi,

Thanks for help. This is JDK Version 1.2 Beta 2.
Here is the error:
In the MS-DOS prompt I enter:
idltojava-ea-win32 stockmarket.idl
It shows:
Archive: C:\download\idltojava-ea-win32.exe
caution: filename not matched: StockMatket.idl

Pls let me know (it is not the mismatch of the .idl file name, I entered and that exists, for sure).
thanks,
sunanda

Look my friend,

idltojava-ea-win32.exe is the archive of the idltojava compiler. Once you run it without parameters it will extract the real compiler and a couple of other files.
As I said, your IDL file is just fine, just extract the program first.

Hi,
Thanks again, but I am still having problem! I run the file idltojava-ea-win32.exe and it created a folder named idltojava-win32. The folder contains one file named idltojava-ea-win32.exe
when I run it like
>idltojava stockmarket.idl
It shows error again:
idltojava-ea-win32.exe: fatal error:
cannot preprocess input; No such file or directory.

Please help me fix it.Thanks.

you have to run with the following flag:
idltojava -fno-cpp test.idl

This turns off the preprocessor that deals with #include, #define, #undef

Cheers,

You can read about the other flags from the two html files that come out of the package.
