Subject [jira] Commented: (AXIS2C-1015) In axutil_uri, a reference is returned, where a duplicated string should be.

-----------------------------------------

Hi Bill,

Well it seems that we should rather append the const prefix to the return type, as you say.
But, what if someone has already made it a point to modify the returned value? Well, I believe
that these could rather be documented for the moment.

The right thing would be to use the const keyword, but, would that lead to a change in API?
I'm not having a clear picture of what should be done. 

I'm not so sure what could a modification to a reference, cause to the object in concern,
but, in the case of the URI, we'll be stumped, if someone modifies a reference. Because all
those validations, at the point of parsing are going to be useless.

Regards,
Senaka

> In axutil_uri, a reference is returned, where a duplicated string should be. This is
because we return axis2_char_t * rather than const axis2_char_t *. However, a user is expected
to be able modify what is returned, according to current api, and thus we must return a cloned
copy of the actual string.
