Goal

The personal Navigation tool allows users to classify documents in many different ways.  Please refer to the Workbench documentation to understand some of the uses of the Personal Navigation tool.

Facet merging is when a taxonomy has multiple classifiers with the same overlapping facets.

As a part of the merging process, first is the merging of top level facets, which includes:

Followed by the top level facets, sub-facets are iteratively merged in the similar manner.  Thus, each classifier will generate facet. If the facet full path is exactly the same (case sensitive), the two facets will be merged into one or will considered as the same facet.

The most common requirement of this is to take a category tree structure for IM categories and apply it to a Concept tree that can be tagged to non IM documents. Non IM documents can be tagged in any number of ways - by path, by a regex against the filename, or by the concepts in the article, etc.  And in addition custom post processers can be written to tag articles.
