Defining a Data Model

Before you start developing your car rental application, you must first create a suitable data model that will serve as a basis for this application. For didactic reasons, this data model will be kept quite simple. For storing the model data, you will therefore only need one table, which will manage persistent car rental data.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to create a table in the Java Dictionary and fully specify it in the appropriate editor. You will create a corresponding archive from this table definition, which is initially only local. Using the Software Deployment Manager (SDM), you will then be able to deploy this archive on the SAP J2EE Engine and create a physical table on the database instance of the SAP DB.
