_RodlTypes Source Files

_RodlTypes source files are similar to _Intf files, but contain a cleaner version of the auxiliary types from your .RODL, without extra metadata and code needed in RODL-based servers.

They are generated when you convert your RODL-based server to Code-First (see the Converting Your Server to Code-First topic for details), at which time they replace the existing _Intf file(s).

Once created, the _RodlTypes file becomes "yours", and you can make changes to it as you please, both to clean up after the conversion, and also as you continue to evolve your server's APIs. You can also feel free to rename the file, break it up into multiple files or move the types inside it around to different source files (for example next to the service implementations they belong most closely to).
