Data Element

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.

Attribute description
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
