In the User's Guide (6.1.1) you find a listing of the default QoS-service
settings and the range of each key. If you do not include a certain key
when creating a new channel these will be used and inherited by its
children and grand-children (i.e. Admin's and Proxies).

To be able to help you with your problem regarding the wstrings I need to
know which Orber-version you're using. I've tested sending wchar/wstring
encapsulated within an any-datatype using VisiBroker. Orber have also been
tested using JacORB (I do not know if wchar/wstrings have been included
in these tests). FYI, sending a wstring is more expensive than string's
since each wchar is encoded/decoded as ushort due to that Orber only
support Java Unicode for wchars; CORBA wchar can range from 1 to 4 bytes.
