The following features improve Business Components in GeneXus X, and provide more and more productivity.
When a transaction is defined as Business Component (by setting its Business Component property = True), you can drag the transaction from the Folder View to a Data Provider source (instead of dragging an SDT), with the purpose of using the Data Provider to load and return an instance or a collection of instances with the same structure as the transaction, in memory. After having the Data provider result, we have to save the instance loaded in memory in the database (by executing the Save method and finally the commit command) or runing through the collection in memory, save each instance and finally execute the commit command.
