With the Elbrus release of SuiteCommerce Advanced, all Backbone.Views are now Backbone.CompositeViews by default. Composite views are simply Views that contain Child Views. These Child Views further modularize the application, so views can be used in multiple contexts. For example, some modules define Child Views that are extensions of Backbone.View. As a consequence, those Child Views are also now Backbone.CompositeViews. This ensures that data displays in a consistent way across the application.
With the Elbrus release of SCA, Views no longer need to declare themselves as composite views using the require( ) method.
