A data element is at the core of NS systems. An data element is the representation of what is referred to in the literature as a ‘noun’. This means that a data element is the anthropomorphic translation of some real-life object to a digital representation. This has of course its exceptions, which is what the data element types address.
Every data element has a few basic attributes, like the name.
|name||The name of the element, in PascalCase|
|packageName||The package to which the element belongs|
|type||The data type as described above|
|status||When defining a component, the Prime radiant will process it. This state will be ‘Ready’, unless an error occurs|
