Business services are a subset of economic services, and share many characteristics with them. Businesses are concerned with creating service systems and building service components. In this way, they can act both as a service consumer and provider. Let’s examine some of the key concepts related to Business services. We will also cover their properties and interfaces.
Business service internal value objects
Business service internal value objects are high-level components that are used to interact with business services. They represent the input and output parameters of operations performed in the system. A published business service will have one internal value object for input and one for output. Each object is composed of several components, which include fields and compounds.
Each business object is referred to by a unique ID. The ID can be retrieved by calling the method getID(). This ID is generated by the repository. The value object ID can be a string attribute, which allows an end-user to look up objects in the repository. It can also be an entity within an aggregate object. The value of the ID is left up to the implementation, but it should be unique globally.
Business service classes
Business service classes are objects that are defined by a module. These objects contain code that is used to perform different types of business functions. In addition to this, the classes can contain properties and methods that are used to manipulate the values of those properties. This provides flexibility in the code, and makes it easy for developers to change the value of a property without having to change the code. Moreover, the framework provides various building blocks to write business calls, including code templates that can generate skeleton code for public methods and properties.
Business service classes may include supervisors, specialists, and assistants. They typically perform technical and managerial duties related to business services. However, they may also be responsible for assisting lower-level employees or performing complex analytical tasks.
Business service properties
Business service properties store information about the business services on your server. You can edit business service properties in the Business Service Properties form by clicking on the Edit Policy button. To edit a business service property, you must first define the business service. Creating a business service is quite simple. You can either create a new business service or use an existing one.
There are two types of business service properties: system-level and service-level. System-level business service properties can be used by more than one business service, while service-level business service properties can only be used by one. However, you cannot modify the properties of a business service after its creation.
Business service interfaces
Various types of business service interfaces are supported by SAP. These interfaces can be developed in ABAP or JAVA. The interfaces can be either standalone or synchronous. The interface editor can be used to define these interfaces. The data structure for these interfaces is determined by the message schema.
Business service interfaces are used to send and receive messages between two systems. The messages are not addressed directly to the business system but rather to a third party system. This is generally used in B2B scenarios.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne’s support for business service classes
Business service classes enable the transfer and processing of information between systems. These services may use different programming languages or platforms, and data must be formatted properly during the transfer. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne has support for business service classes. To learn more, refer to the documentation for these classes.
You can use JDeveloper to create and publish new business service classes, as well as access existing business services. When creating new business service classes, follow the OMW naming conventions. You can start a project with JDeveloper by opening the OMW file, and then creating a new project for each business service class.
