Hi all,
I'm currently studying for a CORBA certification and am wondering if you can help me with the following sample question :

Which one of these has the least marshaling overhead?
1) char
2) octet
3) long
4) struct
5) string

I would go for octet as it maps to a java byte, which needs the smallest number of bits to represent it. Would that be the correct logic to follow?

Cheers
/Tom
