Database driven single sourcing:
Database driven single sourcing identifies grains of information as fields within a database. These fields can then be identified and assembled using a selection of queries. It is not always immediately obvious that a particular solution is making use of database technology; often the workings of the database are hidden behind a graphical user interface (GUI). You may configure your single source project simply by checking boxes and making selections from lists.
