Guidelines for Reusing a Predefined Business Object
In general, avoid copying a business object or business component. However, copying might be appropriate in the following situations:
- When a business component must be included twice in a business object. For example, when the Account business component and Sub Account business component must be included in the Account business object.
- When two business components contain different search specifications and predefault values for the Type field that differentiates the records of these two business components. For more information, see Options to Filter Data Displayed in an Applet.
