What is the recommended way to do application setup in OTP? I mean what if
my application requires some initialization steps before running? E.g. it
requires some mnesia tables created.
As I understand for release upgrade I can do this using *.appup files in OTP
Design Principles I see only example of process state modification is it OK
to transform mnesia tables in code_change/3?
And what do I when I install my application first time?
