Business services are Java classes that manage, run, and provide functionality to other applications. Each business service contains one or more methods that call business functions, database operations, and other business services. When implemented as a web service, business services can be used as a back-end service to interact with other applications. JD Edwards includes a business service class wizard to make the creation of business services easy.
Business services enable organizations to focus on their core business goals and strategies instead of worrying about the technical details of running their operations. Many of these services are based on information technology (IT) assets, and a good business service will align IT assets with business requirements to maximize the effectiveness of the company’s business goals and profits. Business services can include everything from conducting an IT audit to updating an employee self-service portal.
Business services provide many advantages to businesses. They can help companies avoid costly code violations and ensure the safety of their employees. Similarly, they can help companies find office or retail space to rent. In some cases, they can even hire caregivers to provide in-office daycare for employees to help maintain a work-life balance.
Once a business service class has been created, the developer should select a project. This project will contain the business service class.
