Application Object Managers (AOMs) host the Business Objects layer and Data Objects layer of the Siebel architecture.

 It is a server component that creates and processes data at multiple levels.

  • UI layer (supported by the Siebel Web Engine) 
  • Business object layer 
  • Processes business logic
  • Data object layer (supported by Data Manager) 

The AOM is used primarily to support Siebel Web client connections

Application Object Managers (AOMs) host the Business Objects layer and Data Objects layer of the Siebel architecture. The Web clients host the Siebel application user interface layer. The AOM is used primarily to support Siebel Web client connections. To do this, the AOM handles multiple users simultaneously by making requests to the Siebel Server on their behalf.

AOMs are hosted as components in the Siebel Server and run on the application server (the machine that hosts the Siebel Server). The Siebel Server provides the infrastructure for an AOM to serve multiple Siebel Web client users. Multiple AOM components can run on a single Siebel Server installation. AOM components can be configured to run as multithreaded processes in the Siebel Server. Like other Siebel Server components, you can administer AOM components using the Siebel Server Manager.

AOMs communicate with clients using the TCP/IP protocol through a Web server that contains the Siebel Web Server Extension plug-in (SWSE). Communication between the Web server and the AOM can be compressed and encrypted. An independent session is established to serve incoming connect requests from each client. Subsequent requests from clients are directed to the same AOM tasks until the sessions are terminated. After startup, AOMs do not achieve their full run-time environments until after the first connect, therefore, leading to possible delays during the first connection. For further information on how the Web clients and AOMs communicate, see Siebel Performance Tuning Guide.

The Siebel repository file (SRF) is installed as part of each Siebel Server installation. Any changes to the repository file must be applied to the appropriate Siebel Server installations that serve the modified application to the Web clients. When they reconnect to an AOM, Web client users automatically retrieve the new Siebel application configuration. User preferences set and saved by Web client users are saved on the Siebel Server.
