How to store only metadata for an object of type sys:base or cm:object? I have a type which is sub-type of sys:base. I need to store the metadata of it.

My doubts are:
1. Where should the data be stored?

2. How to retrieve the data, as in content and folder you can see the appearance as icon in the company home or user home etc. How does the metadata appear in a folder(is it like an icon of cm:abject)?

3. With reference to the question posted earlier in this forum (http://forums.alfresco.com/forum/developer-discussions/content-modeling/can-i-store-only-metadata-alfresco-11292012-0437) should the object be of type cm:content to store the metadata (except that they do not have a content property). Is there anyway to create metadata other than being subtype of cm:content?

Thank you
