Iterative Development Cycle overview:
Adjust Data Model Database: Changes to the Data Model are implemented in the Data Model Database.
Synchronise kiss!: Changes in the Data Model Database must be synchronised in kiss! by Validating Table Manifests and Synchronising the Data Model.
Validate Table Manifest(s): Check Table Manifests shown in red for fields to be added to Data Model
Generate Code & SQL: When kiss! has finished synchronising new Code & SQL can be generated to take account of the Data Model.
Execute SQL on Test Database: When Code & SQL have been generated SQL (both generated and manual SQL scripts) can be tested against the Test Database.
