Sun Java System Portal Server 7 Technical Overview

Database Taxonomy

So that end users can type direct queries to search the database or browse through the database contents, administrators set up categories. A hierarchy of categories is called a taxonomy. Categorizing database resources is similar to creating a list of contents for the database.
