Answer : Is a enterprise server product constitutes the server side of a light, optimized deployment of Business Objects 5.1.2 that combines the key advantages of thin client Webi and the full-client Business Objects product.
• In a zero-administration deployment of Business Objects, only the Business Objects client software is installed on a Windows PC; all middle-ware is stored and administered on the server and the server-side processing is handled by the Webi system. This means zero-administration on the client computer. It has a 3 tier Architecture:

  • Tier 1: the client. The Business Objects software is installed on the client machine.
  • Tier 2: the ZABusiness Objects Server
  • Tier3: the data sources
Describe New WebIntelligence SDK Object Models in BO?
Answer : WEB INTELLIGENCE SDK now contains two identical object models, WICOM, the
COM interface and WIBean, the Java interface, that allow you to customize Webi functionality.

  • You can use WICOM to write ASP scripts.
  • You can use WIBean to write JSP scripts.
Explain the difference between Full client (Business Objects) and Thin Client (Webi) DOCUMENTS?
Answer : 
  • Full-client (Business Objects) documents can be much more complex than thin-client documents due to additional reporting features in the full client product. Thin-client documents, however, can allow for much larger deployments.
  • Refreshing a full-client document in the distributed architecture deployment requires more resources than refreshing a thin-client document, because of the ability to handle more complex documents built.
  • BUSINESSOBJECTS users can use a scheduling option for full-client documents called Faster Document Viewing Over the Web that generates either a Windows metafile or HTML version of the document.
