This chapter gets you started defining and modifying object definitions using Siebel Tools. Following the NREC example, you complete configuration tasks focusing on the user interface level of the object hierarchy. Working through the tasks in this chapter helps you understand the hierarchy of the major user interface objects—applications, screens, views, and applets—and provides you with hands-on experience with basic configuration.
The NREC example helps place the tasks in context of making configuration changes to meet business needs. The chapter starts off by leading you through the process of narrowing down the preconfigured application to just those screens and views relevant to NREC. In the latter part of the chapter, you configure existing applets based on NREC requirements. You can follow these tasks like a tutorial, configuring against your sample database.
