Enhancing BOL attribute structure & enhancing methods

BOL object: BuilHeaderSearch


Table: BUT000. (It already has field NAMEMIDDLE in it)



1) Does Field 'NAMEMIDDLE' is used to store the middlename of business partners ?


1) Whether to use AET (or) EEWB (or) Enhancing BOL attribute structure & enhancing methods ? which will work best ?


1) If i prefer third way of 'Enhancing BOL attribute structure and enhancing methods', then can i enhance standard struc CRMST_HEADER_SEARCH_BUIL for new field 'Middlename' ? what methods should i enhance ?

2) Any idea about Genil class and its methods used for perform search based on middle name ? Will it have the corresponding method for searching based on middlename and will that method requires as modifications ? or, should i raise any OSS for achieving it ?
