Built-in Types

Built-in (or primitive) types are those that are not defined in terms of other datatypes. They are used as a standardized way to define, send, receive and interpret basic data types in SOAP messages. Primitive data types used in the SOAP web services can be modified for display purposes. For example, although a price field may be passed in the SOAP messages using an integer primitive data type, the NetSuite UI may format the value with a currency symbol for display purposes.

Of the extensive set of built-in (or primitive) types provided by the XML Schema language specification, the SOAP web services implementation uses the following built-in types. For detailed information on XML Schema built-in types, refer to http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-2/.
