Subject [jira] [Commented] (ATLAS-1186) Add Glossary Category
Date Mon, 06 Feb 2017 12:23:41 GMT


David Radley commented on ATLAS-1186:

Hi @Srikanth Venkat,
Thankyou for your questions. to answer them.
1) By taxonomy, I meant the "specific node", i.e, the entity of type taxonomy, which is a
vertex ion in the graph. 
2) I have looked into this question while looking at how this might at version 2. The way
I coded this was that a term could be owned by one category, it seems to me that we do not
need one owning category, so we should allow terms to existing may categories and categories
to have many terms. This proposal is to enhance V1 to use terms as they are today, The V2
implementation of Glossary will suggest improvements to terms  as well.
3) No, because terms can exist without a category.  
4) This fix was a minimal change to the existing function to introduce categories at V1. My
efforts are currently focused on creating a V2 glossary design doc; as part of that the terms
could have many relationships (not just inheritance). Understanding the user experience would
be required for a intuitivel UI, but a quick develper UI prototype would be to add a radio
button to say whether you are adding a category or a term when you press the + button, the
category would then add to the selected category in the tree. A term could be dragged into
a category. Or right clicked and removed from a category. Is this description sufficient ?

many thanks, David

The category would contain (composition type) sub categories. Categories can contain terms.
