The database connection is managed by the server. The table creation is done during the setup and documented in the online help.

Although I have seen that it is possible to add extensions to the storage model and store your own data in the DB, I can't find it anymore in the Wiki: .

I would suggest not to try to do this in any case, as there are possible implications on upgrade scenarios.
If you want to store data, I would rather suggest to create your own database and manage that connection in your extension.

 Thanks Ralph,

Means I have to download any database and connect it with the existing site by extension.

If you want to store your own data in a database, I think that is what you should do. I would however use the Database Management System you already have, create a database there and use that.

If the data is not too complex, you could try to use a string attribute. You can also use HTTP filtered value providers in this context. The data would be stored in an XML file accessible via a HTTP server such as Apache.

See Lab 5 for examples.
