OTX DataTypes (section)
In OTX all variables, parameters, terms, etc. must have a declared type. Within the OTX-Core library is a distinction between two categories, see Figure.
|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.
