Subject AW: Workspace - concept
Date Wed, 17 Mar 2010 15:59:04 GMT
Thank you very much for the links. I knew already DavidsModel-Page, but it was a bit theoretical,
so I hoped, that I could get some "real-life" experiences of what would be the right approach.

Best regards,

with workspace-wide constraints (perhaps nearly the node-wide access management can be left
out); no problem with workspace-wide indexing (I see that the workspace contains the index
of the data; if I think correct, taht would mean, that anyone can search for key words, but
some keywords perhaps should not be seen by all users)

very big workspace with big index
