Time to Live
Document Type Validation
Document Type Storage Types
Client Group Storage Types and Document Type Storage Types
Each document type has properties associated with it that determine how the Broker handles instances of that document type at run time. These properties include how long instances of the publishable document type should remain valid once they are published, document type validation, and the document type's storage type. You use My webMethods to modify these properties:
*Time to live specifies how long Broker maintains instances of this document type once they are published.
*Validation indicates whether Broker validates instances of this document type and if so, if the document can contain fields that are not defined in the document type.
*Storage type determines whether instances of this document type are stored in memory or on disk.
The following sections provide more information about these properties.
