Subject Re: understanding of Workspace
Date Thu, 29 Jun 2006 10:05:25 GMT
hi doug,
i think it depends on how you want to control which documents your
read-only app can see. i assume you want to 'publish' the documents
from you admin-application to the search-application. you can either
flag the published documents, and include this flag in all your
queries, or you can clone them into another workspace. imo, the 2
workspace-approach is the leanest, but uses of course twice as much

regards, toby
