This Building Block Type belongs to Working Area Middleware (MW). A Structured Data Store facility controls the organisation, storage, management, querying and retrieval of "strictly structured data", e.g. a database. The facility can accept certain requests from clients, and performs the requested action (e.g. a data insert, modification, or a query) according to predetermined rules.

The facility can offer the following services:

  • a storage structure for the data;
  • a database modelling language;
  • a database querying language;
  • a transaction mechanism.

Note that additional functionality, or "intelligence", is offered by a separate function named Data Engine.
