The Microsoft Business Data Catalog Definition Editor helps you to author application definition files for the Business Data Catalog. This tool automatically generates the XML for the definition file, so you do not need to manually create the file in an XML editor. It ships as part of the SharePoint Server 2007: Software Development Kit. To use this tool to author metadata for database systems, see Creating a Database Connection by using the Business Data Catalog Definition Editor.
This section provides walkthroughs for authoring metadata from scratch for database systems.
