Configuring the External Business Component
This task is a step in Process of Configuring External Business Components.
When a Table object definition corresponding to the external table exists in the repository, you can configure a business component to use the new Table object definition.
In general, configuring an EBC is similar to configuring a standard business component with the following exceptions:
- The Data Source business component property is specified when configuring an EBC. The value specified for this property should correspond with the name of the corresponding Table Data Source.
- The Log Changes property is set to false (unchecked, the default is true). This will prevent Siebel Remote or Replication transactions from being created.
- When configuring a many-to-many relationship, the intersection table resides in the same database instance as the child table.
- It is recommended that all EBCs use the CSSBusComp class.
NOTE: Substituting a Siebel-provided table with an external table may result in significant downstream configuration work, and in some cases may restrict or prevent the use of standard functionality provided for the Siebel Business Applications.
