Schema components


A group of fields which maintain the status of the unit; units may require maintenance, even when you do not like it. First read the explanation of the life-cycle.


Elements which give facts about the payload, which is defined by the unit, independent of how the payload is included.


The revision of a b:unit is used to determine whether the unit has changed. Only the newest revision should be kept: the older MUST be removed immediately. String order determines age order.


The unit is the base of everything: objects which MAY be useful to be cached. It is the great uniforming data quantity, a generalization of many protocols and system features.
