View Server

A View Server is an OMAG Server that hosts the REST API services to support a UI.
These REST API services are called Open Metadata View Services (OMVS) and they are designed to support specific display paradigms needed by different types of UIs.

The view services are are typically called by the Presentation Server, but may also be used by third parties. The presentation server hosts the JavaScript that controls the browser display.
