The openMDM® Eclipse Working Group is developing intensively on openMDM® 5. Basis for this is a completely new multi-layer architecture. The graph below gives an overview.
The MDM Components shown there make different functionalities available, such as data navigation, search and selection. There are two types of MDM Components: Rich and Headless.

Headless components do not expose an UI part.
