Hi Gregory,

Because you want to browse tags, you might want to change your model by:
- creating a branch with the tags (/jcr:root/tags/foo)
- references these tags in your node by using a path property or
  a reference property.

Reference property allow you to count references and then simply use:
on the tag node to get its sizes.

But, references comes with somes constraints [1].

The "query" will just be :
List<Pair<String, Integer>> tagCloud = new ArrayList()
for (Node node : tagsNode.getNodes())
  tagCloud.add(new Pair(node.getName(), node.getReferences().getSize())
