Interface DynAny

All Superinterfaces:
Object
All Known Subinterfaces:
DynArray, DynEnum, DynFixed, DynSequence, DynStruct, DynUnion, DynValue

Deprecated. Use the new DynAny instead

@Deprecated
public interface DynAny
extends Object

Enables org.omg.CORBA.Any values to be dynamically interpreted (traversed) and constructed. A DynAny object is associated with a data value which may correspond to a copy of the value inserted into an Any. The DynAny APIs enable traversal of the data value associated with an Any at runtime and extraction of the primitive constituents of the data value.
