Managing business objects

Managing business objects

Business Process Modeler provides the Business Object Manager tool, which enables you to define and manage business objects. For each business object, you can add and manage attributes, where data is stored and accessed.
Business objects are fully interoperable, plug-and-play, distributed components that encapsulate traditional lower-level objects that implement a business process. In Business Process Modeler, business objects act as a collection of dataslots that can behave as a single, reusable unit. Business Objects also supports complex nested structures, including collection of other business objects. Using business objects, you can incrementally adjust business applications to fit your changing organizational needs, use them to rapidly build new applications entirely from reusable components, and dramatically reduce your development and maintenance costs.
