public abstract class OpenType<T> extends Object implements Serializable
The OpenType class is the parent abstract class of all classes which describe the actual open type of open data values.

An open type is defined by:

  • the fully qualified Java class name of the open data values this type describes; note that only a limited set of Java classes is allowed for open data values (see ALLOWED_CLASSNAMES_LIST),
  • its name,
  • its description.
