We have learned the most prevalent new concepts in Drupal 7. We also looked at the key elements in the new field system. We then moved on to take a look at how content types and fields interact with the database and its database schema within Drupal. Finally, we looked at the field related database tables in Drupal core.
Fields automates much of the process for us, managing the database schema and inserting values into tables. After this chapter, we should have a good understanding of how a field interacts with its database tables and schema, and have become familiar with the field related database tables.
