finPOWER Connect Business Layer

As part of the architecture of finPOWER Connect, the Business Layer contains the Business Rules and Process Logic behind finPOWER Connect. Compare this to the User Interface layer that presents information to the User.

It contains many objects that represent things in finPOWER Connect, such as a Client, as well as objects designed to handle processes, such as changing an Account's Statement Frequency.

It is important to realise that the Business Layer is the only way to safely update information stored in the database. In fact, there is no other way to update information in the database that won't break the terms of your Software Licence.

Your first introduction to the Business Layer will likely be scripting, either enhancing a Summary Page, adding custom functionality for a Workflow or a building a custom Web Service.

Therefore it is important, if you are going to develop for finPOWER Connect, that you have at least a basic understanding of the finPOWER Connect Business Layer.

The finPOWER Connect Business Layer is built using the Microsoft .NET Framework.
