Orion/Documentation/Developer Guide/Core client services
Overview of core client services
Orion provides a number of basic infrastructure services that can be used by client pages for performing various tasks. This section of the guide outlines what services are available, along with simple examples of how to use them.
The orion.core.favorite service is used to access and store the user's bookmarks or favorites. While a user may opt to use their own browser's bookmark mechanism instead, there are some specific advantages to using Orion's favorite service instead:
- Favorites are persisted on the server, so the user can switch to another client computer or browser and access their familiar bookmarks
- Favorites are associated with a specific Orion application and user, so favorites from different users or applications are not all mixed into a single place.
