A Container is a term that describes the ability of task
and folder nodes
to contain other nodes within them. The container model
is a navigation model where the user navigates into containers (e.g. by double clicking on a task node) and then can only see nodes contained in that particular container.
Picture 1: in the artefact view of the shared space interactive mock-up you can see the three nodes contained in one, where the containment relationship is represented by white lines
Picture 2: in the process view (which uses the container model) of the shared space interactive mock-up you can see the same three nodes when the user has navigated into the container of the parent node
