ArchivesSpace architecture and components

ArchivesSpace is divided into several components: the backend, which exposes the major workflows and data types of the system via a REST API, a staff interface, a public interface, and a search system, consisting of Solr and an indexer application.

These components interact by exchanging JSON data. The format of this data is defined by a class called JSONModel.
