If you’re familiar with data modeling for relational databases, you'll notice differences in the way it is done for Couchbase Lite.

Couchbase Lite is a document database. Unlike traditional relational databases, data is stored in documents rather than in table rows. A document is a JSON object containing a number of key-value pairs. Entities, and relationships between entities, are managed within the document itself.
