Related vs Linked Beans

Is getting related beans the same as getting linked beans?

What is the difference between related fields and linked fields? It seems as if some one to one relationships create fields and some create tables. I maybe mistaken on that but could somebody who knows explain a little please. Thanks in advance.

You can have a relate field without a relationship

It stores the related id in the modules table

If you do that you can’t use get_linked_beans

If you create a relationship using studio then it creates a link table between the 2 modules

I hope this helps a bit
