A CSDL ComplexType element.
A ComplexType element defines a data structure composed of Complex types do not have identities (or keys) and therefore cannot exist independently. Complex types can only exist
as properties of entity types or other complex types.
Complex types cannot participate in associations. Neither end of an association can be a complex type, and therefore
navigation properties cannot be defined for complex types.
A complex type property cannot have a null value, though the scalar properties of a complex type may each be set to null.
EdmSimpleType properties or other complex types.
A complex type can be a property of an entity type or another complex type. A complex type is similar to an entity type
in that a complex type defines data. However, there are some key differences between complex types and entity types:
