Building Block Repository (BBR)


Jump to: navigation, search

An ART-DECOR Building Block Repository (BBR) is primarily intended to be used in DECOR based specifications.

For example, to use or refer a template or a value set in a DECOR-based project, simply use @ref to link to the BBR artifact. In order to get a list of prototypes for template editing, a project must reference a prototype BBR (see below).
