    hi,

    1. A Repository is a place where data are stored (ie. a Space in Alfresco)

    2. A Data Dictionary is a repository of metadata (that is a data about data...so a particular kind of data)

    In this simple DB:

    Code:

    _____________________________________

    NAME SURNAME AGE

    -


    Matteo Di Palma 27

    Marco Rossi 31

    _____________________________________

    Matteo, Di Palma and 27 are data

    Name, Surname and age are metadata

    i hope that it is helpful to you.

    regards,

    reddy
