Detailed Description

Variable Access.

The variable types represent the counterpart of the dereferencing terms (e.g. BooleanValue, IntegerValue, FloatValue, StringValue, ByteFieldValue, ListValue, MapValue, ExceptionValue) which are used to read the actual value stored in a declaration. By contrast, variable types are used by OTX nodes and actions when the variable container itself is of primary interest, not the value stored in it. This is the case e.g. in an Assignment action: The calculated value given by the term will be assigned to the variable identified by result. Another example is the Loop (ForLoop configuration) node with its counter element, which identifies the Integer variable which shall contain the current iteration number at runtime. In all of these cases, the current value of the variable is not relevant.
