Schema development environment
The first task in the development phase is often to develop the schema and the security schema for the deployment. You can use a schema development environment, which features a single-server deployment of i2 Analyze with the i2 Connect gateway to develop the schemas.
In an environment that includes a database, significant changes to the schema or the security schema can be time-consuming. Destructive changes to either schema require you to rebuild the database. The purpose of the schema development environment is to enable rapid iteration. When you apply the schemas that you create here to the Information Store in the configuration development environment, they are less likely to need significant changes.
