Interface RecordSchema

  • @UML(identifier="RecordSchema",
    public interface RecordSchema
    A collection of record types. All schemas possess an associated name space within which the record type names are defined. A schema is a flat data structure, similar to a Java package.

    Record schemas do not provide a hierarchical framework within which data types may be organized. Name spaces, however, do define a hierarchical framework for arbitrary named items. Record schemas can participate in this framework by virtue of the fact that they are all identified by local name or some subclass. A schema's location in the hierarchy can be communicated by getSchemaName().scope().name() .
