Comment:

A first 0.1 version is released as external plugin: https://github.com/jri/dm4-facets

According to the first draft there are 2 differences:

  • Facets are not part of the DM core but realized as an external plugin (however, this might change in the future).
  • The "Facet" type is not realized as additional meta model entity but solely as a role type.

    55Being part of the DM core model facets can be exploited e.g. by the REST API and by the web client's page and form generators. Requesting a topic via REST API involves selected facets which are retrieved along with the topic. The page and form generators can be configured to involve selected facets in its rendering/processing procedures. Which facets are involved in each case depends on the application context. E.g. in a multi-site scenario with *one* underlying DM storage each site can be setup to present a different facet of the same topic.
