Subject [jira] Resolved: (AXIS2C-1443) axutil_string_create_const() has a strange signature
Date Thu, 04 Mar 2010 14:45:29 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AXIS2C-1443?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Samisa Abeysinghe resolved AXIS2C-1443.
---------------------------------------

    Resolution: Won't Fix

It is documented right there:

 @param str pointer to string. 

it is 'pointer to string' not 'pointer to char'

Hence char ** and not char *

> axutil_string_create_const() has a strange signature:
>     /**
>      * Creates a string struct.
>      * @param str pointer to string. string struct would not create a duplicate
>      * of this and assumes the str would have longer life than that of itself
>      * @param env pointer to environment struct
>      * @return a pointer to newly created string struct
>      */
>     AXIS2_EXTERN axutil_string_t *AXIS2_CALL
>     axutil_string_create_const(
>         const axutil_env_t * env,
>         axis2_char_t ** str);
> Why "** str" and not "* str" ?
> I expected to be able to do:
>     axutil_string_t *soap_action = axutil_string_create_const(env, "MySoapAction");
> Instead I have to do:
>     const axis2_char_t * MySoapAction = "MySoapAction"
>     axutil_string_t *soap_action = axutil_string_create_const(env, &MySoapAction);
> This is crazy !
> Same problem for axutil_string_create_assume_ownership().
