Configuring the House Detail View

NREC's House Detail view needs to be able to display the current list of houses for sale and the details for each house, such as square feet and number of bedrooms. The product entity in the Siebel data model meets NREC's needs reasonably well. However, attributes such as square feet and number of bedrooms are not part of the Siebel data model.

You can extend the standard data model to meet your unique business requirements. For example, assume NREC's design team has decided to extend the internal products base table by adding additional columns. These columns will be used to store the following additional attributes for each house.

  • Address
  • City
  • Number of Bathrooms
  • Number of Bedrooms
  • Price
  • Square Feet
  • State
  • ZIP Code

NOTE:  Although List Price exists as standard field on the Internal Product business component, assume that NREC's design team has decided to add a column to S_PROD_INT to keep the house attributes stored in one table.

For detailed information about extending the data model, read Configuring Siebel Business Applications.

In this section you will add columns to the internal products table, and then modify objects in the business object layer and the user interface layer to accommodate the columns changes. You will modify existing objects as well as create new objects where appropriate.

The tasks for accomplishing this are:
