This is the Operations interface for the mapping from IRObject.
Several interfaces are used as base interfaces for objects in
the Interface Repository (IR). These base interfaces are not instantiable.
A common set of operations is used to locate objects within the
Interface Repository. Some of these operations are defined in
the IRObject. All IR objects inherit from the IRObject interface,
which provides an operation for identifying the actual type of
the object. (The IDL base interface IRObject represents the most
generic interface from which all other Interface Repository interfaces
are derived, even the Repository itself.) All java implementations of
IR objects must implement the IRObjectOperations interface.
Returns the DefinitionKind corresponding to this Interface Repository object.
the DefinitionKind corresponding to this Interface Repository object.
Destroys this object. If the object is a Container,
this method is applied to all its contents. If the object contains an IDLType
attribute for an anonymous type, that IDLType is destroyed.
If the object is currently contained in some other object, it is removed.
If the method is invoked on a Repository or on a PrimitiveDef
then the BAD_INV_ORDER exception is raised with minor value 2.
An attempt to destroy an object that would leave the repository in an
incoherent state causes BAD_INV_ORDER exception to be raised
with the minor code 1.
BAD_INV_ORDER - if this method is invoked on a repository or
PrimitiveDef, or if an attempt to destroy an
object would leave the repository in an incoherent state
