    The best place to start is with the javadoc. The 'versioning objects' are Family, VersionSeries (VS) & VersionDescription (VD).

    Start off with the example that you're versioning a Document (which is a subclass of a PublicObject). There will be one Family object and one VS. A future enhancement will support multiple VS per family. For each version, there will be one VD and one Doc.

    A simple picture of a doc w/3 versions:

    Family
    |
    VersionSeries
    |
    --------------------
    | | |
    VD VD VD
    | | |
    Doc Doc Doc


    This is a start. Hope this helps.
