What are the most essential requirements for business applications? The following tasks are among the most important ones:
Ease of modification/adaptation of application logic for/to changing business objectives.
Ease of integration with other applications.
The solution to the first task in 1C:Enterprise was briefly described in "Customization and support" section of this article; then we described it in detail here. Today, we will talk about the second task - namely, integration.
Integration tasks can be different. To solve some of them, all you need to do is just perform an interactive exchange of data - for example, to send a list of employees to a bank in order to process payroll cards. More complex tasks may require a fully automated data exchange, possibly with involving the business logic of the external system. There are tasks that are specialized, such as integration with external equipment (for example, retail equipment, mobile scanners, etc.), or with legacy or highly specialized systems (for example, RFID tag recognition systems). It is essential to choose the most suitable integration method for each task.
1C:Subsystems Library 2.0 includes a demo exchange plan and rules that you can use to set up data exchange between two 1C:Subsystems Library infobases.
In this example we will set up data exchange between 1C:Subsystems Library 126.96.36.199 Demo (the first infobase) and a 1C:Subsystems library 188.8.131.52 infobase that contains no data (the second infobase).
