Data Type Creation


In XI during Data Type's creation I have a small query.

If we create any filed in the Data type, in the "Details" column we have different options to fill in like below.

1. minLength

2. maxLength

3. pattern

4. enumeration

5. whiteSpace.

I know what they mean in XML world. But in XI I didn't understand what they actually do. Even in case of

mapping step, payload field values are not getting validated against these 5 properties. As per my understanding these 5 values are as good as like description and they do nothing in XI. Please correct me if I am wrong. Is there any place where we can use these 5 properties in XI either during UDF or any other place ?
