One of the principles behind the idea of SiteUP! is to consider a (transactional) system as a set of catalogs of data and services, in which the contained information may or may not have been submitted to an internal process before or after its storage in database or simply as means of consultations.
This interaction of and towards the stored data, part of the elements of the deployment environment and the options selected by the user to fulfill this purpose. This interaction of and toward them is performed by functions and objects defined in the case of those stored in the databases.
While the data stored in the database can be modified, there are others that are only of query, so they are stored in files. These should not be confused with the dictionary equivalents of labels, which are explained later.
