4.2 Summary

On the Repositories tab there is a navigation pane. At the top of the navigation pane is the navigation toolbar discussed in Section 4.1, “Toolbar”. Within the navigation pane is a navigation tree that allows you to navigate through the different object types that comprise your environment.

Different objects may be nested at different levels within the navigation tree depending on their relationships to each other. Clicking on different objects or folders within the navigation tree enables access to the different perspectives available for that object in the management pane.

The navigation tree that is available within the Repositories tab conforms to the following structure:

Each navigation element has a number of associated perspectives offering different views of the objects contained by the selected navigation element, or the configuration information specific to it. For many of these perspectives, an associated toolbar is provided so that it is possible to perform different configuration or management tasks on elements selected in the management pane.
