The property context defines refers to the property instance as well as to the property definition.

The parent context for a property context is a structure context (when the property is part of an object instance) or a Database Object context (when the property is an extent.

The property context allows handling read and update events, validity checks and insert and remove events.

The default property context can be overloaded by a application specific property context classes.
