Some legacy schemas may be lacking meta data such as foreign keys, but applications would still like to use them. Alternatively, updatable views may reflect underlying tables, but the code generator cannot access the meta data through the database's dictionary views. In those cases, "synthetic objects" can be configured, i.e. meta data that is generated purely by the code generator without being there in the meta data source.
