Using Siebel Tools > Managing Repositories >
The Siebel repository refers to the set of tables in which Siebel objects and server scripts are stored. The set of objects and server scripts stored in the repository define a Siebel application (such as Siebel Service or Siebel Sales) and are compiled into a compressed file called a Siebel repository file (SRF file). You use Siebel Tools to view data in the Siebel repository.
The Siebel repository is populated with data during the installation process. For more information, see the Siebel Installation Guide for the operating system you are using.
The SRF file is a compressed file that contains a compiled version of the Siebel repository. Siebel applications read the SRF file at run time. It provides the Siebel applications with much of the metadata it needs to define interactions with the enterprise data and software users.
CAUTION: Use only one Siebel repository in production. Siebel products have been designed on the assumption that the compiled Siebel SRF and Siebel repository table data are synchronized. If you try to use multiple Siebel repositories in production, you will get unpredictable behavior.
NOTE: Browser scripts are compiled into the browser script compilation folder, which can be specified in Siebel Tools on the Scripting tab under View > Options.
