Hello Woochun,
You should not modify the lcdd file. Make all necessary changes in the compact.xml file and use the GeomConverter utilities to create the lcdd file.
Once you have defined your new detector and assigned it a name, that name will be stored in the event header. When you later process the slcio file using code in org.lcsim, this detector name is used to look up the geometrical description plus whatever other files are needed for the event display or analysis. How it does so is detailed at atabase+Overview. Specifically, read the section on "Detector Alias Files". Your alias file should look something like:

sdjan03: file:/path/to/my/sdjan03/

The compact.xml file describing your geometry should be in this directory. That file, and not the lcdd file, is what provides the information to the org.lcsim analysis software.
