Choosing a Deployment Method for eConfigurator

Siebel offers two deployment options for creating eConfigurator applications:

  • Server-based administered through Customizable Product.

    This method works by solving simultaneous constraints to ensure accuracy of the solution, with all data and constraint processing occurring at the server.

    How to use the server-based eConfigurator is covered in this guide.

  • Browser-based administered through Interactive Designer

    This method uses Configuration tables to describe relationships, and delivers a subset of configuration capabilities directly to the end-user's browser, using only JavaScript and HTML.

    How to use Interactive Designer is covered in the Siebel Interactive Designer Administration Guide.

While either method may work for your configuration needs, the following sections provide guidelines for selecting one over another.
