Data Type Classes (Tools/APIs)
Data type classes enable you to enforce sets of rules about the values of literal-valued properties. InterSystems provides an extensible set of data type classes. Each data type class has the following features:
It specifies values for compiler keywords. Among other things, these control how the property is projected to SQL, ODBC, ActiveX, and Java clients.
It specifies values for property parameters.
It provides a set of methods to translate data among the stored (on disk), logical (in memory), and display formats.
Provides many data type classes. For a table that lists them, see “Data Types” in Using Caché Objects.
