The Enterprise Services Repository is a development environment for very different application goals. It represents not only the central access point for service development but also access to the development of cross-component processes that are based on the exchange of XML messages. Depending on which of these application goals you wish to pursue, you require a different subset of objects from the ES Repository.

Define an application-related basic selection of object and model types using the application profile. You can choose between the following application profiles:

      Service Development

This basic selection facilitates modeling and interface development.

      Process Integration

This basic selection facilitates the modeling of cross-component processes and the development of interfaces and mappings, as well as adapter objects.


This basic selection contains the total amount of object types of both of the Service Development and Process Integration application profiles.


By hiding individual object types you can further adapt the basic selection defined by the application profile to your individual needs.
