CategorySet and InformationSet are two automated tool that create Data processor window as well save and fetch data from database. After that it give you access to read data like a Database table. We can add validation in both Client and Server side to avoid vulnerability access.
One XML file definition is enough to perform all this work in a minute.
Always clear the cache after changing any definition from
Admin Panel > Preference > Cache Management
CategorySet is used to categorize data in single and multilevel. Each categorySet work with a set of filed which is configured in XML definition.
We can render a CategorySet in admin panel with proper access and customized field.
InformationSet is a data container when we can configure as much field and type of fields. The input fields in the processor window crates depends on data type like Input, Textarea, Drop-down, Date Picker etc.
Once a definition file is ready then we can render it in admin panel based on interface builder definition.
If you have a huge range of data like a transaction history of a bank database then we suggest you to use Model rather then InformationSet if you don't have a strong database driver.
