1 Introduction to JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Business Interfaces

This chapter contains these topics:

1.1 Overview of Business Interfaces

A business interface is a set of components that implementation teams can use to create an integration between JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and an external system. Business interfaces can include one or more of these business interface components:

  • Business Services

  • Real-Time Events

  • Batch Import and Export Programs

  • Orchestrations

See:

Each of these interface components can be used to send data to or from the EnterpriseOne system. While some of these interface components are used within a specific process, most have been designed as stand-alone components that can assist implementation teams with building customized integration solutions.

Note:

Most of the business services available in the EnterpriseOne system are stand-alone components. Those business services are documented in detail in this guide.

In addition to those business services, there are others that have been created for use with a specific pre-built integration. Those services are documented within the context of the integration process to which they belong.

For additional information about the services that have been created as part of a pre-built integration process, see Chapter 6, "Business Services for Pre-Built Integrations"

1.1.1 Business Objects

This guide describes each business interface component available in the EnterpriseOne system, and organizes these components by business object. A business object is a specific piece of business data, such as a customer, sales order, or business unit.

For the purposes of this guide, the business objects have been grouped under their respective product areas, which include:

  • Asset Lifecycle Management (ALM)

  • Customer Relationship Management (CRM)

  • Financial Management Solutions (FMS)

  • Foundation

  • Human Capital Management (HCM)

  • Project Management

  • Real Estate Management

  • Supply Chain Management and Manufacturing (SCM and MFG)
