A property defines a characteristic of a class, represented hierarchically as Schemaname_classname.propertyname. For example, using the CIMProperty class, you can define a key as a property of a particular CIM class. Values of properties can be passed back from the CIM Object Manager as a string or as a vector for a range of properties. Each property has a unique name and only one domain--the class that owns the property. A property of a given class can be overridden by a property of its subclass.
An example of a property is the CIMProperty, which denotes the properties of a CIMClass.
