public abstract class ObjectType extends com.evolveum.midpoint.prism.impl.binding.AbstractMutableObjectable implements Objectable
Common supertype for all identity objects. Defines basic properties that each object must have to live in our system (identifier, name). All objects are identified by OID. The OID is an immutable identifier (usually UUID). Except the OID all the objects have human-readable name. The name is usually unique for each object type, but this is not a strict requirement. Note: object type is fixed, it cannot be changed. The object retains its type from the time it was created to the end of its life.
