Could someone tell me if I had a table and I have the meta data for the columns,could I somehow collect the table name,column name and the data type and save it in something so as I could have these attributes to draw from in other classes?

Could you define what you mean by 'table'?
That's sort of a generic word.

Would a map be the best choice?

Yes, some kind of Map to store values accessible using a key.
