PI AF and Batch MDB...

How are the PI AF database and the PI Batch Module databases related?  I'm new to PI and have been going through the training videos, but I haven't found a good explanation of the interrelation of these systems yet.  During install of AF, it asks about MDB and recommends NOT using it if you're doing a new install...it appears to be legacy...so I expected that the batch system in PI 2010 would use the AF database for its hierarchy, but when I watched the PI batch courses on line, which appear to be using PI 2010, they're still setting up units and modules in the MDB.   


Any assistance in clearing up my confusion is appreciated.
