10. Building a Model

A build is the generation of a physical database in the LANSA Repository, based on your logical modeler data model. For example, a build of an entity will create repository fields, a physical file, logical files and an object access module.

The build is almost completely automated. Your database is built at the push of a button.

In the logical modeler, there are three steps in the building of a database and the steps in which they are run is described in 10.1 Sequencing the Builds. The order of the builds and the entities you select for building are very important because of entity dependencies. If you request a build which cannot be performed, the modeler will provide the appropriate error and warning messages. For example, a Relationship build expects both entities in a relationship to have a database build completed.
