8.2.3 Mapping Simulator Key Words to Property Aliases
|For Standard||RESQML v2.0.1|
To fully identify the kind of properties, flow simulators usually expect enumerated keywords as property titles, Because RESQML does not constrain anything about the title, it is mandatory--even in a flow simulation context--to always describe a property using a property kind and optional facets.
However, to be kind to a software reader, RESQML also allows a property to define one or more aliases (see 22.214.171.124 ObjectAlias ), which can be used to specify the expected keywords for a particular simulator that is identified as the authority of the alias(es). These aliases can be used as shortcuts to quickly get the kind of a property in a flow simulation context.
NOTE: The alias is only a shortcut; the RESQML property kind and facets construct contains the mandatory information. For example, you cannot use the same alias for a different combination of property kind and facets.
