Extending the WebSphere Commerce schema using the data service layer

You can extend the existing schema to support customization. These extensions include changing the physical database schema, generating the object-relational metadata and physical SDOs, and using query templates to retrieve the new information.

About this task

These tasks enable you to add new data to a service provided by WebSphere Commerce. They do not, however, apply to creating a new, custom service.
Note: See ../../com.ibm.commerce.developer.doc/concepts/csddatabase.html for information about what changes and extensions to the schema are supported and recommended.
