Business Function Set, Business Function & Switch
Business Function Set, Business Function & Switch are three major components of the Switch Framework.
Logically a Business Function Set is a group/collection of Business Functions and it corresponds to an industry solution.
Logically a Business Function is a group/set of switches.
A switch is an object which controls the visibility of different other repository objects or controls the run time behavior of other objects.
A business function set may contain several business functions from different industry solutions and also a business function set can also be nested means a business function set can contain other business function sets. It is also quite possible that the business functions of different industry solutions can participate in multiple business function sets.
A business function is a building block of business function set which contains a set of switches and it can be switched on/activated. Once the business function is activated all the associated switches( except conflict switches) are activated.
Business function can be reversible and non-reversible and reversible business functions can be made switched on and off. From a functional point of view business function types are:
- Industry Business Functions which are always assigned to a business function set.
- Enterprise Business Functions which are independent of the business function set.
A switch controls the visibility or run time behavior of different repository objects assigned to it. A switch can have 3 states as on,off & standby.
ON- The objects behaves like non switchable objects.
OFF- The system behaves as these objects do not exists.
STAND BY- All dictionary objects and all static code enhancements like enhancement point point & section (STATIC) are switched on but other objects are switched off.
