POINT-AND-CLICK LIGHTNING COMPONENTS
The Component Builder allows you to build and customize Overcast Components using the Overcast Component Framework – a meta-data driven approach to building Salesforce Lightning Components for real-time connected systems.
The Component Builder
The Overcast Component Builder is a point-and-click tool that makes it easy to build Overcast Components, i.e. Salesforce Lightning Components that read or write data for any backend system, giving your users access to all the company’s data and information they need all in one place – regardless in which system it resides in.
Besides the ability to build-your-own, when you edit a prebuilt Overcast Component from the Component Library, you’re brought into the Overcast Component Builder to manage the component’s settings. You can update the component’s inputs, filter values, fields, labels, navigation, and field behaviors.
Overcast Components are meta-data driven Lightning Components for the Salesforce mobile app and Salesforce Lightning Experience that are connected via an Overcast real-time Integration Scenario to a backend data source. Overcast Components are a non-coding approach to displaying and editing a third system’s data without having to copy the data to the Salesforce objects. In effect, it allows you to visualize any data in Salesforce while leaving the business logic and datastore in the connected system.
Overcast Components follow the Salesforce Lightning Design System but are optimized for complex business objects with complex header and item relationships. Here is a preview of Overcast Components built using the Overcast Component Builder:

Enhancement Concept and Business Logic
Overcast Components are one way to connect external systems. They come with an enhancement concept that allows for business logic to be added in the form of Apex code and even allows you to replace parts of the UI with a custom-built Salesforce lightning component. They support complex business objects with headers and items that need to be processed in one go. Overcast Components can be used side-by-side with the traditional Salesforce UI technology.
