I have downloaded version 7.17. I want to create a mobile rental website. The mobile version must look at a webapp (emulating a native app) using jQuery mobile).
With Jquery mobile you don't need to distinguish between desktop and mobile version. But maybe if it iis easy I want to use the full desktop client.
I have a database design as an Entity Relation ship diagram. How must I convert this to the Drupal database. Are there visual tools available to see you data structure?
Can you easily access the tables with the relationshop (any examples?) I mean access the database straight without using drupal but don't destroy the Drupal database structure ensuring the usage of Drupal also.
To get a feeling of what I want :
Person (renter, owner of a property)
Payments (received with a payment calendar)
Object (rental object can be house or whatever)
Pictures of the rental object (a link with picasa would be nice2have)
Properties of the object (Surrounding, places to see etc.)
Description and pricing of options
Booking pointing to start data and end week
Calendar (2012, 2013 etc)
Renting weeks (belonging to a calendar and hods pricing info)
Is Drupal the right solution to choose? Hoe must I set up the database? Can I use the database for a mobile site (skipping Crupal and directly work on the database)
For the CMS part of the site (editing of texts) I like to choose drupal.
