Domain-Value Maps and Cross References

>>Requirement -

When an object flows from one system to another system, both using their own entities to represent the same type of object, transformation is required to map the entity from one system to another. For example, when a new customer is created in a SAP application, you might want to create a new entry for the same customer in your Oracle E-Business Suite application named as EBS.

So the functionality is required to map the entities from different domains. Even if in future, another domain gets added, again is the requirement to represent that entity in some common entity format. For example when an object gets created in system A with unique identifier A001, the same object is propagated in system B with identifier B001. The decode functionality is required to map B from A.
