2 Energistics Data Object

Topic Version1Published10/20/2016
For StandardEID v4.0

An Energistics data object schema is a complete, high-level schema from one of the Energistics domain specifications (RESQML, WITSML, PRODML). These schemas are represented in XSD files as global (i.e., root level) XML elements. For Energistics standards, there is a single root element across all schemas (AbstractObject), though this is not a general requirement of XML schemas.

A data object is a single-instance document described by one of these schemas. This specification is primarily concerned with standards and guidelines for names (or identification) of these data objects, references within a data object to another data object, and references between a data object and other systems or naming authorities.
