Title: Faceted search on assets packaged according to the reusable asset specification (RAS)

Abstract: The present invention discloses a solution for allowing the performance of a faceted search upon assets packaged according to the Reusable Asset Specification (RAS). Such a solution can include the creation of asset classification schemas. An asset classification schema can define hierarchical relationships between a classification name and a multitude of descriptive attributes. Then, a consolidated faceted search schema can be generated from the asset classification schemas, which can be used by a faceted search engine to perform faceted searches on the assets.
