Common Data Model helper methods
The idml_schema_2.4.jar file provides additional helper methods for working with metadata specific to the Common Data Model.
You can use the application programming interfaces in this .jar file in the creation of a Discovery Library Adapter; these methods simplify integration and use of the Common Data Model.
To use these methods, use the Common Data Model helper class setter methods for the metadata you want to work with. For example, you might use the addComputerSystem(ComputerSystem) helper method instead of the generic addManagedElement(managedElement) method.
