Business Components That Hold Temporary Data for a Task UI
A transient business component (TBC) is a type of business component that provides a way to create data that Siebel CRM can display and that the user can edit in a task-based user interface (task UI). The data in a TBC is temporary. Siebel CRM uses this data during the life of the task, typically to control the flow or logic, then discards it when the task is complete. In some situations, Siebel CRM can store data in a TBC to long-term storage in the Siebel database. For more information, see Siebel Business Process Framework: Task UI Guide.
