The Domain Browser contains a visual representation of the Functional Domains stored in your Knowledge Base and the objects that you have associated with them.
Functional Domains enable you to group together objects of a similar functional use in one "domain". For example, you may have several Java projects stored in the Knowledge Base. If you create a Functional Domain called "Java Classes" and associate all the Java classes from all the projects in the Knowledge Base you will then be able to see, at a glance, ALL the Java classes under the "Java Classes" domain.
This is just one example of how to use Functional Domains - however, their use is wide and varied.
