A set of contexts that is specified in a job. The job can be executed on a computer that matches any of the contexts. For example, a job could specify a mix that consisted of two contexts. Context 1 could consist of the constraints "WTT\OS equals Windows XP" and "WTT\RAM-MB greater than 512". Context 2 could consist of the constraints "WTT\OS equals Windows Server 2003" and "WTT\RAM-MB greater than 1000". In this case, the job's mix would specify that the job could run on client computers with Windows XP and more than 512 MB of RAM, or client computers with Windows Server 2003 and more than 1GB of RAM.
