Hi Silpa,

want information about SLD.And what is system products and components,technical systems and business systems?

Good Document for u r requirement download this document .....

what is a Technical System? why is it created?

Technical system is a phisical machine, it have a IP. Can be a BBDD, ERP, J2EE ......... a Business System is a logical term that we use into the Business Scenarios and represent these Technical System that we had created.

In the SLD, you have SAP server details as a Technical system . Then Business System is created for this.

Registering a new technical system in SLD - ABAP based


what is a Logical System? why we create it while creating of Business System?

-->In SAP terms, a logical system is a client in a database. Messages are exchanged between logical systems.

Logical system is created in the SLD. For e.g you are posting an Idoc.

what is a Business system? What is use of creating it?

Business System have an entry in the SLD and Buiness Service do not.

Business Systems are used when you are sending data to and from an R3 system and can be of ABAP, JAVA and Third Party Types.

Business System is a logical representation of a Technical System.

Business Service is a abstract representation of a System. For instance, have a several system working together and IPs of this machines change eventually. When we use a Business Services like google we reference a computer that we don't know the phisical implementation.

why we maintain a Logical system name?

--> Logical system is maintained to communicate with different systems under the distribution model of ALE Layer.

This is the official Training Material, it will not be possible to get it as need to approach any of the training Institute.
