BOL objects

Hi Experts,

What is the difference between objects like BuilHeader etc and objects like BUS2000120?For workflows we use the latter .The 2 types lie at different levels?Objects like BUS2000120 lie at the DB level?Please explain by citing examples.

I am still trying to get my basic concepts clear.Thanks in advance:).Hoping for some elaborate replies.

Thanks and Regards

1) Actually the BOL objects represent part of a particular business object according to the application set. So they can represent either the header or segments of the business transaction in the case that you are showing.

2) BOL - Business Object Layer which is the IC webclient API for accessing/updating CRM business data

BOR - Business Object Repository - a modeling of logical business objects that is used for workflow and/or bapi creation.

The BOR objects is a generic concept used in more than just CRM. The BOL objects are a CRM specific concept used to support the IC webclient and the CRM webclient interface.

Take care,
