Business Component Object Type
A business component defines the structure, the behavior, and the information displayed by a particular subject such as a product, contact, or account. Siebel business components are logical abstractions of one or more database tables. The information stored in a business component is usually specific to a particular subject and is typically not dependent on other business components. Business components can be used in one or more business objects.
Business component objects have associated data structured as records, they have properties, and they contain data units called fields. In the object interfaces, fields are accessed through business components. The business component object supports getting and setting field values, moving backward and forward through data in a business component object, and filtering changes to data it manages. This object type is available to every interface.
