    AttributeDefinition. Defines the characteristics of a configuration attribute. It is used to construct an actual Attribute holder. An attribute definition has the following characteristics:
    • A name
    • A default value or a value initializer
    • A type, which needs to be specified if it cannot be inferred from the default value, i.e. when it is null
    • Whether an attribute is immutable or not, i.e. whether its value is constant after initialization or it can be changed
    • A validator which intercepts invalid values
