2.5. Type

A Schema Document defines Types, which may or may not be anonymous. A Candidate Instance may or may not be valid against a Type. A Candidate Instance can be annotated against a Type, which results in a Data Model Instance. There are four kinds of Types: Atomic, Array, Object and Union. Types are represented with objects that are nested in a Schema Document. Named Types can also be referred to with Qualified Names.
