    SubType in component.xml

      Hi all,

       

      Is there a way to specify the sub type of an input or output type in the component.xml of a DSC?

      Here's the input portion of one of my operations:

      <input-parameter name="lst" type="java.util.List" required="true" title="lst">
          <supported-expr-types>Variable,XPath,Literal,Template,</supported-expr-types>
      </input-parameter>

       

      As you can see the type is java.util.List, which is a generic type. In workbench, this type is shown as a List. When clicking the + sign to create a variable, only the type is pre-populated with List. It would be so much simpler if both - type and sub type -  could be specified in the xml.

       

      I've noticed that Adobe services which make use of the List also do not specify these, is there a reason? It's quite complicated for the customer to find the right type.

       

      Thanks

      Nic
