Component Category (Buckminster)
< To: Buckminster Project
The optional Component Category that the component is a member of. When supplied, the category is used as a discriminating value by the advisor nodes of the Component Query and the providers of the Resource Map.
The category is motivated by the fact that components sometimes have equal names. An example of this is an Eclipse feature that has the same name as one of the plugins that it contains. I.e. 'feature' and 'plugin' are good examples of categories.
