 Admin Objects & Business Objects


In Enovia, there are two types of objects Admin & Business objects. 

Admin Objects are the prerequisite for the business objects.

Admin objects are similar to Class in Java, and Business objects are identical to instances of classes or objects in the java. Admin objects can be created using a Business modulator or MQL.

Business Objects are instances of Admin Objects. In simple words, admin objects are metadata, and business objects are customer data.

Admin objects are categorized into two types: Schema & UI Components.

In Enovia, Schema components are used to define the data model (Meta Data).

UI Components are used to define user interfaces.

Attributes are used to store descriptive information about business objects. We can add one Attribute to both Types & Relationships.


An Administrative user can define which type of type can be connected using a relationship. Relationships are used to connect business objects into structures.



A Policy governs the type and controls the behavior of business objects. A policy may govern one or more types in enovia.
