Hi Johnny,

Thanks for the quick reply!

I'm sending the RecordSequence defined with a generic version of the
IDL below:

	typedef string NameType;

	typedef string IdType;

	typedef string TimestampStringType;

	typedef long long TimestampType;

	struct HeaderData {
		TimestampType timestamp;
		TimestampStringType timestampString;
		IdType id;
		NameType name;

	struct Point {
		double x;
		double y;

	typedef sequence<Point> Polyline;

	typedef sequence<Polyline> Polylines;

	enum DataType {A, B, C};

	struct Data {
		DataType type;
		double value;
		double value2;
		double value3;
		Polylines lines;
		Polylines lines2;

	struct Record {
		HeaderData header;
		Data myData;

	typedef sequence<Record> RecordSequence;

The Notification message has a few parameters using this Java code:

		StructuredEvent dataEvent = new StructuredEvent();

		EventType type = new EventType("Type", dataType); // should we use
IDL typecode?
		FixedEventHeader fixed = new FixedEventHeader(type,"event");

		Property variable[] = new Property[0];

		dataEvent.header = new EventHeader(fixed, variable);

		dataEvent.filterable_data = new Property[4];

		Any timeAny = orb.create_any();
		dataEvent.filterable_data[0] = new Property("timestamp", timeAny);

		Any timeNanosAny = orb.create_any();
		dataEvent.filterable_data[1] = new Property("timestampNanos",

		Any idAny = orb.create_any();
		idAny.insert_string( id);
		dataEvent.filterable_data[2] = new Property("Id", idAny);

		Any nameAny = orb.create_any();
		dataEvent.filterable_data[3] = new Property("name", nameAny);

These fields in the Notification message are in all the events so I
don't think they are the culprit.

Let me know if you need any other info.
