Event Types
Event Type Cache
An event type defines the event's name as well as the fields that it contains. Both the Broker and the webMethods Broker library functions use event type definitions to verify that an event's fields are set with values that match their defined types. Event type definitions are also used if you call the awValidateEvent function to validate an event's fields.
Events created without a Broker client context are not type checked. See Field Type Checking for more information.
