Business Service Structure
Business services allow developers to encapsulate business logic in a central location, abstracting the logic from the data it may act upon. A business service is much like an object in an object-oriented programming language.
A service has properties and methods, and maintains a state. Methods take arguments that can be passed into the object programmatically or, in the case of Siebel EAI, declaratively by way of workflows.
NOTE: For more information on business service methods and method arguments, see Using Siebel Tools.
