The Remote Systems

Siebel Transact accesses two remote systems: the Transact database (a RDBMS) and the Order Management System.


The RDBMS contains relational tables that store the data mapped to the entity beans by the Data Object layer.

The Order Management System

The Order Management System manages the shopping cart UI—it receives XML from the Transact Java Engine and responds to browser requests from the Siebel application with HTML.

You must customize the Order Management System so that it is fully integrated with Transact. The Order Management System must accept and process the XML generated by the Transact Java Engine, and then respond by returning the appropriate HTML.

More than one Order Management System may be accepting submissions from a single Siebel application.
