A.6 GDS ToC Previous Next

The GDS may include additional optional behaviour which this example illustrates. What is required is the availability of all AliasNames in the mandatory TagVariables and Topics folder, but a GDS may also choose to replicate or even merge the additional AliasNameCategoryType instances from the Servers that have registered. Figure 1 provides an illustration of a GDS that merged the AliasNameCategory instance into a tree. It is required that AliasNameCategories be aggregated by the GDS, but the structure of these categories is not defined.
