Managing Business Components Overview

Managing Business Components Overview

Use business components to group and display sources and mapplets in a repository folder. A business component node appears in each repository folder in the Repository Manager and the Designer. You can add an unlimited number of directories to the business component tree.
A business component can refer a source, a mapplet, or a shortcut to a source or mapplet.
The following figure shows directories in which you group business components:
In the Repository Navigator, Samples_85/CRM/Business Components includes the followng directories: Customers with CUSTOMERS and ORDERS subdirectories, and SALES with ITEMS and Shortcut to PROMOTIONS subdirectories.
You can use the same source or mapplet multiple times in the business component tree.
If the business component tree is in a shared folder, all directories in the business component tree are shared.
