Chapter 6 - Field List

6.1 - Purpose        top

List all data and function fields of a Software Entity.

6.2 - Usage        top

A <field-list> is a sequence of one or more field descriptors structured as follows:

   <field-definition>
   <field-comment>
A <field-definition> is a logical line structured as follows:
   <type> <field-identifier><optional-cardinality> <label>

6.3 - Description        top

The field list of a Software Entity summarizes all data and function fields that concur to build the layer-specific facets of the entity.

A <type> declaration can be either a <basic-type> declaration or a <user-type> declaration, as described in the following chapters.

The <field-identifier> and <label>, as well as the <field-comment>, obey the same rules and serve the same purpose described earlier in this guide for entity <identifier>'s, labels and comments respectively.

The <optional-cardinality>, if present, specifies that the field is an array of items, each of type <type>, whose size in terms of number of items is defined as follows:

   [<size-specifier>]
where <size-specifier> must be one of the following:
  1. A positive integer decimal number, specifying the number of items in the array;

  2. The word dyn, specifying that the array size is dynamic.
