Siebel Virtual Business Components

Virtual Business Components (VBC) are used to view data from an external system in Siebel applications. Using this mechanism, no replication within the Siebel database is required.

Virtual Business Components are configured in Siebel Tools and use business services to access data from an external system. VBCs use standard transports like MQSeries, HTTP, and MSMQ, along with the XML Gateway Server, to query, insert, and update data.

NOTE:  For details, see Integration Platform Technologies: Siebel eBusiness Application Integration Volume II.
