Check Siebel repository via REST directly in e-Tools

 

In the last months we have been extending e-Tools with new features that exploit the innovations introduced by the Siebel development team. One of the most interesting innovations presented in IP2016 is the REST interface. As described in the bookshelf, REST (Representational State Transfer) is a software architecture style that provides a convenient and consistent approach to requesting and modifying data. In the Siebel CRM RESTful system, resources are stored on the Siebel Server.

e-Tools, the unique CASE tool for Oracle Siebel, supports any Siebel version, generating visual artefacts that are used for all the phases of a Siebel implementation project - from requirements to solution design.

e-Tools now includes a new REST interface to communicate with your Siebel Server in order to get the information you need to check in the Repository or - if you activated the new IP2016 feature - in any Workspace you might want to use. In the following video we present the new window embedding the client to get any data from your Siebel repository. By doing so you will be able - for example - to compare the values of a specific object with the ones of a previous version modelled in e-Tools.

 

 

This new feature - as the ones that use the new generation Siebel IP2016 UPT framework - is included for all existing e-Tools customers as any other new feature that we constantly release.  Remember, you can still use e-Tools in all your project's phases with ANY Siebel version  - but you will be able to exploit also these innovations, like querying the repository via REST, once you upgrade to latest Siebel releases.

NOTE - in order to get data related to Workflows you need to get IP2016 Patch Set 3; thanks to Chandan DasGupta from the Oracle Siebel team for the information.

Oracle Siebel roadshow

(London, 12th of May 2016)

 

e-Up was excited to be part of the Oracle Siebel CRM road-show in London this week. The Oracle Siebel team introduced IP2016 innovations and future vision to a selected group of partners and customers. The road-show is going to take place in other key locations around the globe, so if you are interested in attending, get in touch with your Oracle contact.

So, IP2016 is out and you want to try it. Good. First of all let us tell you that it would really make sense to try a complete installation of Client, Tools AND Server. This would allow you to test all the new features, including the REST interface, the new WYSIWYG Web Composer and basically the complete set of functionalities. But you might want to wait for a Cloud instance for the Server and start immediately with a local installation of Client and Tools.
