An artifact group is a type of Component Attribute that groups artifacts as stated by one of the attribute types Action, Artifact Group, and Artifact.


A group of artifacts is a structure of groups, it can be as simple as containing a single file, it can be emtpy, contain a directory, several directories, or complete artifact group(s).


Althought the group does not specificy pre-requistes, it is constructed by including other attributes, with the same effect - the refered attributes must come into existence before the group is created. As atributes included in the group can be computed by actions, the construction of a group might trigger execution of those.


Please add examples
