5. The Database Tables
Interchange catalogs are centralized around the database. You can alter any of the standard databases, add new databases, or remove unneeded databases
The foundation catalog includes the following tables, organized here by content:
- Your site content data
- Customer data
- Transaction-related data
- Third-party relationship data
- Site administrative data
- Shipping and tax
You may also see symbolic links pointing to index tables, for example products.category.txt linking to products.txt.10. These are automatically generated indexes, in this case into the products table to speed category searches. See Dictionary Indexing With INDEX in the database documentation for details about auto-indexing of text databases.
The following dictionary lists and describes each table used in the Foundation demo.
