What is a Business object[BO] in alpha360 erp?



What is a Business object[BO] in alpha360 erp?

In its simplest form, it just “represents” a record in a table.

Example: The Business Object <Country> represents a record from the gCountry table.


In its complex form, it can represent MANY related records from many different tables.

Example: The Business Object <Party> represents related records from the gParty, sCustomer, pSupplier and hEmployee tables. 


Another complex example is the <Invoice> Business Object, which will be introduced in later versions.


In alpha360erp, all access to Business Objects, is done through Business Processes[BP].


So for say the complex BO <Party> there are the following self-explanatory BPs:

BP_Party_Add

BP_Party_Edit

BP_Party_Delete

BP_Party_get


And for simple BOs like say the <Industry> BO there are simpler BPs:

BP_Industry_quickadd

BP_Industry_quickdelete


All the _quick BPs use WINDEV tables as the main interface to add or delete records AND don’t require a WINDEV FORM/WINDOW.


Please note that there are NO _quickedit BPs, because they are handled by the WINDEV tables.


The main idea here is that we NEVER use any kind of HReadSeekFirst[] etc, ANYWARE in the project, EXCEPT in the code for BPs.


BPs include transaction handling, error handling and user access handling _AND_ they are shared with the WEBDEV implementation.
