Notational Conventions

The following notational conventions are used throughout this document:

  • The period, or "dot" ("."), notation is used to refer to a property of a system abstract data model element. If A refers to an element of the system abstract data model, A.Property denotes the Property property of the element A.

  • The elements of the abstract data models that are defined in section 3 are referred to as instance variables. The names of instance variables and local input parameters are formatted in italics. Elements of the abstract data model in [MS-MQDMPR] that are referred to in this document are in bold and non-italicized.

  • A monospace font is used for all method signatures and Interface Definition Language (IDL) declarations.

    Sections 1.8, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative and can contain the terms MAY, SHOULD, MUST, MUST NOT, and SHOULD NOT as defined in RFC 2119. Sections 1.5 and 1.9 are also normative but cannot contain those terms. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
