InetAddressType (Enum Class)
A value that represents a type of Internet address.
unknown(0) An unknown address type. This value MUST
be used if the value of the corresponding
InetAddress object is a zero-length string.
It may also be used to indicate an IP address
that is not in one of the formats defined
ipv4(1) An IPv4 address as defined by theInetAddressIPv4 textual convention.
ipv6(2) An IPv6 address as defined by theInetAddressIPv6 textual convention.
ipv4z(3) A non-global IPv4 address including a zone
index as defined by the InetAddressIPv4z
ipv6z(4) A non-global IPv6 address including a zone
index as defined by the InetAddressIPv6z
dns(16) A DNS domain name as defined by theInetAddressDNS textual convention.
Each definition of a concrete InetAddressType value must be
accompanied by a definition of a textual convention for use
with that InetAddressType.
To support future extensions, the InetAddressType textual
convention SHOULD NOT be sub-typed in object type definitions.
It MAY be sub-typed in compliance statements in order to
require only a subset of these address types for a compliant
Implementations must ensure that InetAddressType objects
and any dependent objects (e.g., InetAddress objects) are
consistent. An inconsistentValue error must be generated
if an attempt to change an InetAddressType object would,
for example, lead to an undefined InetAddress value. In
particular, InetAddressType/InetAddress pairs must be
changed together if the address type changes (e.g., from
ipv6(2) to ipv4(1)).
