Hello everyone, recently I've been reading Liferay's documentation and came across this term. It can be found here: http://www.liferay.com/documentation/liferay-portal/6.0/development/-/ai/service-build-2 (Generate the Service section). I searched for this term on the Internet, but found nothing. Is that Liferay's own terminology or am I missing something? If it's the former, could you please give a closest analog of this term? If it's the latter, I would also like to know more. Thanks in advance.

The term "Book" is just used as an example name for an entity that you can create using ServiceBuilder. It has no special meaning in the Liferay context...

Thank you all, that helped a lot. At first I thought it was a reserved name for tables or something like that. Now the things are clear.
