Architecture Information Platform Architecture
Description Tags are simple text labels that are attached to a piece of content. Each piece of content can have multiple tags. Folders also have a TagScope object which encapsulates information about the tags used on content in that folder. The JavaScript TagScope object provides a simple illustration of what a TagScope represents. The TagScope object contains an array that lists Tags in count order. There are methods to find out how many times a particualr tag is used.
Deployment - App Server It is not likely that you will deploy Java extensions directly into a Tomcat application server as classes and Spring context files. Use an SDK build project instead.
