Discussion

NOTE: Primitive types are essential for code generation and tools interoperability.  For completeness and for low-level extensibility, this topic describes the mechanism for defining primitive types.  But user-defined Simple Types are the preferred way of creating custom data types.  Defining custom primitive types is not recommended at this time.
