What happens when you generate a PDM

Shared DBMS

In this lesson you will generate a Physical Data Model (PDM) from a Conceptual Data Model (CDM).

You generate a PDM for a particular Database Management System (DBMS). Before you generate the PDM, you must select the DBMS referred to as the target database. PowerDesigner translates the data types specified in the CDM into the physical data types which the target database supports.

The correspondence between conceptual and physical data types is defined in a DBMS definition file. There is a DBMS definition file for each type of target database.

You will use a DBMS definition file that is shared with a master DBMS file in .XML format stored in the DBMS library. This file can be used by any number of models. Any modifications to the master DBMS definition file are available to all models using the DBMS in share mode.

Copy DBMS

A copy of the master DBMS definition file is saved with the model. Any

definition

modifications made to the DBMS are only available to the current model.

PDM translation

When you generate a PDM, PowerDesigner also translates the following

 

conceptual objects into the following physical objects:

 

&RQFHSWXDO REMHFW

 

3K\VLFDO REMHFW

 

 

 

Entity

 

Table

 

Entity attribute
