The properties of an entity type define its characteristics: its internal and external names, icon in Enterprise Analyzer, flags, and so on. The table below shows the properties of an entity type.
|The internal name of the entity type: COBOL, for example.
|The display name of the entity type: Cobol File, for example.
|The name of the entity attribute that holds “reference-resolving” information for an entity: Source, for example. See the subtopics below for more information.
|The name of the entity attribute that holds the display name for the entity. A Java File's display name derives from the value of its ClassName attribute, for example.
|Flags that define the nature of the entity type: LEGACY, for example. See the subtopics below for more information.
|The name of the class used to perform registration, unregistration, and invalidation tasks. Specify Default, unless the entity type should not have a folder in the project, in which case, specify NoRegistration.
|The type of “reference-resolving” information for the entity: File, for example. See the subtopics below for more information.
|The name of the file that contains the entity type’s icon for display: COBOL.gif, for example.
