No, you can have any setup (both layout and interchange code)
in any way you want. Interchange does not place any requirements
on that.

However, it helps if you name the database tables and fields the
same way as you see in common Interchange catalogs, so that you can
copy/paste code from our catalog (the Standard Demo), and that most
functions work out-of-the-box, without additional parameters needed to
specify non-default options.

For help, see our Catalog Building Tutorial; it describes how to 
create a basic catalog from scratch:


Also, later you will want to check out the code of our Standard
demo to get ideas on how to implement your functionality, or
even copy/paste some of the code.
