AdvancedCriteria is a format for representing search criteria which may include operators on field values such as "less than", or may include sub-clauses such as several criteria applied to fields joined by an "OR" operator.
An object representing a criterion to apply to a record.
A DataSource is data-provider-independent description of a set of objects that will be loaded, edited and saved within the user interface of your application.
Metadata about a DataSourceField, including its type and validators.
An object that modifies a dsRequest based on several available values, including preceding responses from the same queue.
An operationBinding tells a DataSource how to execute one of the basic DS operations: fetch, add, update, remove.
Specification of an operator for use in filtering, for example "equals".
The ServerObject tells the ISC server how to find or create a server-side object involved in
An atomic type such as a string or number, that is generally stored, displayed and manipulated as a single value.

Each Java Class here represents an XML element, and each field is a setting that can be specified as either an attribute or a subelement.
For example, DataSource.canMultiSort can be set like this:
Or like this:
When a class in this package has a field that is an Array of another class, it means there is a containing XML tag named after the field, then several tags named after the class. For example, DataSource.operationBindings is an Array of OperationBinding. The XML for this is:
<DataSource> <canMultiSort>true</canMultiSort> </DataSource>
If the field is not an Array, it means there should be a singular tag. For example, OperationBinding.mail:
<DataSource> <operationBindings> <operationBinding operationType="fetch"> ... various operationBinding settings ... </operationBinding> </operationBindings> </DataSource>
<DataSource> <operationBindings> <operationBinding operationType="add"> <mail to="firstname.lastname@example.org" templateFile="messageTemplate.txt"/> </operationBinding> </operationBindings> </DataSource>
DataSource files and other Component XML files can be localized using resource bundles -
