Event Types
An event type defines the event's name as well as the fields that it contains. webMethods Broker API objects, like BrokerEvent, 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 BrokerEvent.validate method to validate an event's fields.
Events created without a BrokerClient context are not type checked. See Field Type Checking for more information.
