All Implemented Interfaces:

public class IndirectionException
extends SystemException

The Indirection exception is a Java specific system exception. It is thrown when the ORB's input stream is called to demarshal a value that is encoded as an indirection that is in the process of being demarshaled. This can occur when the ORB input stream calls the ValueHandler to demarshal an RMI value whose state contains a recursive reference to itself. Because the top-level ValueHandler.read_value() call has not yet returned a value, the ORB input stream's indirection table does not contain an entry for an object with the stream offset specified by the indirection tag. The stream offset is returned in the exception's offset field.
