A development component (DC) is an object in the SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio that represents a software unit that you develop. A DC is always assigned to a certain software component (SC). The DC contains the information for the software unit itself, for the relations between the different DCs and the parts they share – that is, the metadata of the development.
A development object is the part of the DC that you change or develop; it provides the DC with a certain part of its functionality. A development object can be a Java class, a Web Dynpro view, a table definition, a JSP page, and so on. Development objects are always stored as “sources” in the DTR repository. In a DC you can perform different types of development – for example, you can develop a Java project or a Web Services project.
