Data Types

Each node of the XML schema is of a specified type. For details on XML data types, visit the following URL: http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-xmlschema-2-20010502/.

In API Reference, a node can be of a simple or a complex type. If the type of the node is complex and has a name, the name of the type is followed by a file name. The file name specifies the file where the type is located. If the type is not named, it is called complex in the reference. If the type is simple, it can be a standard type or its modification. A list of standard simple types is presented in the following table.
