Siebel EAI. Oracle uses a program that makes sure that these adapters work according to Oracle standards. Siebel EAI and Business Components This topic describes Siebel EAI usage with business components. Siebel EAI and the Virtual Business Component A Virtual Business Component (VBC) is a mechanism in Siebel EAI by which data from an external system is viewed in a Siebel application without having to replicate that data within the Siebel database. For example, assume an end user accesses detailed credit card information from a mainframe system for a particular customer account, which is viewed in the Siebel application interface. In this case, the basic customer account data, such as account number, name, and so forth, is stored in a Siebel application while the detailed transaction information on the credit card account for that customer is stored in an external database. The detailed transaction information for a particular account is retrieved from the external system on demand without replicating that information in the Siebel application. A VBC is configured in Siebel Tools and uses business services to access data from an external system. A VBC can use a standard transport, such as MQSeries, HTTP, and MSMQ, to query, insert, and update data. A VBC also uses the XML Gateway Service. Siebel EAI and the External Business Component An External Business Component (EBC) is a mechanism in Siebel EAI that provides access to relational data sources that reside in a non Siebel table or view that uses a Siebel business component. Unlike a VBC that requires a business service, an EBC can use a Siebel database connector to access data. An EBC is configured in Siebel Tools by using a Table object definition in the Siebel Repository, and a physical table that resides in the same Siebel database instance or subsystem that contains other Siebel tables. Siebel EAI with Java and J2EE Siebel Business Applications provide standards based technologies that allow you to access J2EE components from a Siebel application, and supports the creation of Java and J2EE components to access Siebel objects. For more information, see Transports and Interfaces: Siebel Enterprise Application Integration .

Overview: Siebel Enterprise Application Integration Version 8.1 Overview of Siebel EAI About Siebel EAI Components 12 Access to a Java or J2EE Component from a Siebel Application Siebel Business Applications provide three mechanisms to invoke Java and J2EE components: Web Services The Outbound HTTP adapter Java Business Service When interacting with a J2EE component that is published as a Web Service, a Siebel application can use the Web Service Description Language (WSDL) document that describes the service and operations, then generate a proxy Business Service that allows the Siebel Business Application to invoke the Web Service just like it does with a local object. When the Business Service is invoked: 1 The Object Manager detects that the Business Service is a proxy to a Web Service 2

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
