Nesting of OTX data types
  • Simple data type groups (Simple Data Type)
    Simple data types describe scalar elements that can accurately store a value.
  • Complex data type groups (Complex Data Type)
    Complex data types are composed of simple data types or other objects than can store a value in general more.

Libraries can add on the extension mechanism defined in the Core new data types.
