Significance of the domain name for Soft Types and attributes

Hi All,


I have the XML entries as below, for loading soft types.


<csvbegintypedefnode<br/> handler="com.ptc.core.meta.type.mgmt.server.impl.TypeDefinitionNodeLoader.beginCreateTypeDefinitionNode">
<csvnodename><domain><type_name></csvnodename>
<csvparenthid>wt.doc.WTDocument</csvparenthid>
<csviconfile>doc.gif</csviconfile>
<csvdescription><type_desc></csvdescription>
<csvdisplayname><type_display_name></csvdisplayname>
<csvhierarchydisplayname><type_hier_display_name></csvhierarchydisplayname>
<csvinstantiable>true</csvinstantiable>
<csvdeleted>FALSE</csvdeleted>
<csvuserattributable>TRUE</csvuserattributable>
<csvlogicalidentifier><type_logical_ident_name></csvlogicalidentifier>
</csvbegintypedefnode>


What i would like to know is the significance of the DOMAIN prefixed before the <type_name>. Is there anyway in which we can use a variable in this XML for the domain? And what if we dont use a domain at all. Will it have any problems later on.?


And since our Production and Test environments might have different domains, we need to manually change the value in all of these XML files before loading.


Would like to know whether anybody encoutered this kind of problems before? I have a similar file for Soft attributes too.


Thanks & Regards,


Praseeth M
