NamingService Unknown Error

NamingService Unknown Error

NamingService Unknown Error


I am new to Corba Orbix C++. I am working on a small project to get
accquaintance with Corba Client Server 3.3 on Sun systems. When I try
binding name and object, I get into trouble with bind_new_context on the

#include <Namingservice.hh>
int main(argc, argv)
     CORBA::Object_var  orb = CORBA::ORB::_init(argc,argv,"Orbix");
     CORBA::Object_var  boa = CORBA::BOA::_init(argc,argv,"Orbix_BOA");

    CORBA::Object_var  name_service=

    CosNaming::NamingContext_var  root_context  =


    CosNaming::Name_var   name= new CosNaming::Name(1);
    name->length( 1 );
    name[0].id   = CORBA::string_dup("Hello");
    name[0].kind = CORBA::string_dup("");

          CosNaming::NamingContext_var   next_context =
    }catch(CosNaming::NamingContext::AlreadyBound &ex) {
            cerr << "AlreadyBound...." << endl;
            ......code to rebind...


When I run the server*, bind_new_context fail but error is not trapped in
the 'AlreadyBound'. So I change the code to catch with SystemException:

    catch(CORBA::SystemException &ex) {
            cerr << "Error : " << ex << endl;
            ......code to rebind...

 then the error comes out like this:

 Error: 12000 -- Unknown Error Code : 12003

Anyone knows what the problem is, please let me know.
