What are the differences between Runtime Business services and Compiled Business services ?
Ans:- Runtime Business Services

Runtime business services are not compiled into the .srf file. The database stores them as
records and you can change them at any time. The next time a runtime service executes, it uses
the changes to the definition. This makes them useful for logic that changes frequently and
logic that you need to change without deploying a new .srf file. The drawback to a runtime
business service is that anyone with access to the Business Service Administration view can see
the code.

This can pose a security issue. Runtime business services can be useful in a
development environment to test frequent changes to scripts by using the business service
simulator. Since no compiling is required, code development may be faster in the runtime

Compiled Business Services
Compiled business services are defined in Siebel Tools and represent a functionality that needs
more security and is not likely to change. You must compile and implement a new .srf file to
implement any changes. Because these business services are compiled, they provide more
security than runtime services and they are faster to load.
