<h6 class="CaptionFigColumn SchemaHeader">Description: </h6>Defines a mapping between an implementing class and an AttributeValue Runtime type. By categorizing attribute values types in an CMAnnotation file, we can assign types and therefore processing of those types using the CMAnnotation file metadata and context information.

The MetaDataEnabledRuntimeTypeProcessing framework will use the value found on the attribute-value-runtime-value property of a cm-attribute annoation to bind to a class that implements the type. That type may be able to provide processing for ContentAssist, Validation, Quick Fix/Quick Assist, or other context sensitive operations.</p>
<ul class="ConfigMarkupAttlistDesc">
<li><b>id</b> - unique id for the type within the extending plugin</li>
<li><b>class</b> - Class that will be used to implement the type. It must implement <code>org.eclipse.jst.jsf.metadataprocessors.IMetaDataEnabledFeature</code> and it is recommended that the user extend the <code>org.eclipse.jst.jsf.metadataprocessors.AbstractRootTypeDescriptor</code> or one of its subclasses.</li>

<h6 class="CaptionFigColumn SchemaHeader">API Information: </h6>cm-attribute annotation elements can have an "attribute-value-runtime-type" property that maps to the id of this ext-pt. The property must be fully qualified with the extender's plugin id. i.e. if type is FooType, the property value must be
