Business services are a class of economic services that are not necessarily produced by a single company. They are an identifiable subset of economic services, and share many characteristics. Businesses are concerned with building service systems to meet the needs of their customers, both as service providers and consumers. Business services are used by many different types of businesses, from small businesses to multinational organizations.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne exposes business services as published interfaces
A published business service in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is an object that represents a class with public methods that perform business processes. These methods can be called by other business service classes. Consumers can access these published business services through a web service. Consumers can create internal business services, and they can call these services from the published services.
To use these published interfaces, you must configure the underlying JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system. This requires a login password for the WLS Console.
Object management workbench (OMW)
The Business services object management workbench is an online environment that enables the user to manage business services objects. The tool allows the user to find and enhance technical objects and manage business partners. It is based on the object model and uses a Business Object Tree to display data. The workbench is integrated with Industry-Specific Solutions and Settings. It requires extensive Customizing, but it does offer some basic features.
The Business Services Object Management Workbench is a web application that makes managing projects and objects easy and intuitive. For example, an automobile factory can use the Object Management Workbench to determine the cost of different engine models. For instance, a V8 engine will cost more than a V6 engine. With the Business Services Object Management Workbench, a user can easily determine how much each engine model will cost, and adjust costs accordingly.
Object management workbench (JDeveloper)
Object Management Workbench (OMW) is an application development tool that helps developers create business applications faster and more efficiently. Its streamlined object organization makes it easier for developers to create applications and reduces the chances of introducing bugs in the final release. It also improves user experience by streamlining the development process.
You can create Java artifacts for your business services in JDeveloper. You can access JDeveloper via the OMW Design tab. On the OMW design form, click the button labeled Invoke JDeveloper. A dialog box appears showing the files that are currently selected. Deselect the others and click OK. After that, you’ll see the artifact Java file under the business service.
Internal value objects
Internal value objects are a way to model a business function. These objects have a flat hierarchical structure and a limited number of components and compounds. Each compound or component name should be prefixed with Internal. Usually, an internal value object class will have one compound and many fields that correspond to the member names of a business function data structure.
ArrayList is used for creating internal value object collections. It is easier to work with and can be dynamically sized. An ArrayList is needed for serialization, so it is a good choice for business functions that expose functionality.
There are different kinds of external interfaces that can be used in business processes. For instance, if you’re selling insurance products, your sales department may work with another department that specializes in the type of insurance you’re selling. External interfaces may be in the form of mail servers, external authentication, or even databases that are provided by a partner company.
Depending on the complexity of the application, interfaces may be critical or non-critical. The reliability of the interfaces can be determined by evaluating their availability and service levels. If the interfaces are critical, some components may need high availability, while others may have lower availability.
