Administration Services Concepts

The administration services manages the configuration of the Open Metadata and Governance (OMAG) Server Platform subsystems within an OMAG Server.

Figure 1 shows the different types of OMAG Servers that Egeria supports. The light colored servers are generic types of servers, the darker colored servers are those that can actually be run.

Figure 1

Figure 1: Hierarchy of OMAG Server Types

The way to understand the diagram is that the arrows should be read as IS A. For example, the Repository Proxy IS A Cohort Member and the Cohort Member IS A OMAG Server. This means that everything documented about a particular type of server is also true for all server types that point to it through the IS A arrow, all of the way down the hierarchy.

Object-oriented software engineers would know of this type of relationship as behavior inheritance.
