    Database and data source in Planning application

    hyperion start
      Hi Hyperion gods,
      In the process of creating planning application and creating the data source, I am a bit confused.
      While creating data source, we need to give a name for the DATA SOURCE, and a DESCRIPTION, and under APPLICATION DATABASE, we need to specify some things such as - DATABASE PLATFORM, SERVERNAME, PORT, DATABASE, USER, and PASSWORD.
      I was wondering if someone could give me a good insight regarding the difference between DATASOURCE and DATABASE in this context.
      Since I am migrating the whole application and cube structure from one server to a new one, do I need to name it exactly the same (except for the server name)?
      Thanks for your input.
