GDT vs. Business Object


Hello all,

what is the relationship between Global Data Types (Core Data Type or Aggregate Data Type) and Business Objects in the ESR?

Like I read at, both ones are reusable in different software components. In the FAQ I found for GDTs: "...act as the semantic building blocks for service interfaces.". What does this mean in detail?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards, Stephan
