ARM 4.0 Properties
[ARM 4.0]

ARM 4.0/4.1 uses two types of properties to describe applications and transactions: "identity" properties (for applications and transactions), and "context" properties (for applications and transactions). More...


 Identity properties

An identity property is a property that has the same name and value for all instances of an application or transaction.

 Context properties

A context property name is the same for all instances of an application or transaction, but each instance may have different values.

Detailed Description

Each property consists of a name string and a value string.

They differ based on when the names and/or values are set, as shown in the following table

Identity Property (applications and transactions) Name and Value 
Context Property (applications and transactions) NameValue
