Module 7: Creating a new view using a custom context provider

This module takes you through the steps of creating and using a custom context provider to customize a CARMA view. The ContextProvider, which you create, controls how the context of the CARMA model is displayed in the view. This module demonstrates how to customize the context provider to filter out repository instances that are PDS part of the build process (that is, the listing, object, and load PDS). It will also only show PDS that are associated with CARMA, the PDS that have a CARMA token in the name.
