An aggregate is a data type definition containing related tags and/or attributes grouped together. Some of the contained tags can themselves be other aggregates. An aggregate does not contain data values, but is comprised of tags containing data, and/or other aggregates.

An aggregate provides a mechanism to localize and contain related information within a single, named XML structure. Aggregate names are part of an XPath to an individual XML document node (element).
