VBC Cache and Instance Manager
Integrating external systems with Siebel data in real time is a common business requirement. A standard approach is to use Virtual Business Components (VBC) with a substantial amount of scripting. This approach, however, often has associated performance and scalability concerns. The Caching VBC was originally developed to address integration with external billing systems, and the design requires a minimal amount of scripting. These features, however, can be extended and applied to a broad set of integration challenges beyond billing.
