Class AddressBook
Object
dw.customer.AddressBook
Represents a set of addresses associated with a specific customer. The AddressBook object gets its data from the Profile object for the customer. When scripting, this class allows AddressBook to be treated as a separate object from the Profile. However, data is only stored in the platform in the Profile object and there is no separate AddressBook object. For this reason, the AddressBook ID is always the customer profile ID.

Note: this class allows access to sensitive personal and private information. Pay attention to appropriate legal and regulatory requirements when developing.

Properties
addresses  :  List  (Read Only)
A sorted list of addresses in the address book. The addresses are sorted so that the preferred address is always sorted first. The remaining addresses are sorted alphabetically by ID.
preferredAddress  :  CustomerAddress
The address that has been defined as the customer's preferred address.
