Creating a New Business Component

You might need to create a new business component if there are no predefined business components that provide a good functional or technical fit for your business requirements. For example, if you must predefault record values to a different type as a way to differentiate certain records from other records in the same table.

For more information, see Reusing Predefined Objects.
