Diff. between content server and archive server(SARA on content server)

I am very interested about difference between content server and archive server. Is there content server supplied by SAP and archive server by third party producers or something else?
If so dditionally what needs to be done to archive data (via Sara) on content server. I did it on sap R/3 4.0 on an archive server. Is it huge difference to do it on 4.7x2 on content server?

The content server is used to save documents,
and SARA (and other third party producers) are used to archive old data.
For example:
You should use Content server - When you need to save un-structured data about worker (e.g: pictures, documents and etc) .
You should use SARA (and other third parties) - When you need to move to archive old
worker which have left your organization before 5 or more years (there for they are not relevant for you)
Here is some more information about Content server
from help.sap.com:
"Therefore, besides the SAP database, an external content server is always available in every SAP system installation. In this way, the necessary technical infrastructure is provided for all document-centric applications and business scenarios that do not require a long-term archiving solution"
Here is some more information about SARA and archiving
from help.sap.com:
"Data Archiving removes from the database application data from closed business transactions that are no longer relevant for the operational business. The archived data is stored in archive files that can be accessed by the system in read-only mode."

  • In LSMW, what is diff between LSMW-BAPI and LSMW-IDOC

    hello all
    In LSMW, what is diff between LSMW-BAPI and LSMW-IDOC

    Hi Swamy,
    The differences between IDoc and BAPI are as follows: 
    IDocs are text encoded documents with a rigid structure that are used to exchange data between R/3 and a foreign system.
    Idocs are processed asynchronously and no information whatsoever is returned to the client.
    The target system need not be always online. The IDOC would be created and would send the IDOC once the target system is available (tRFC concept). Hence supports guaranteed delivery.
    With asynchronous links the sub-process on the client can be finished even if the communication line or the server is not available. In this case the message is stored in the database and the communication can be done later.
    The disadvantage of asynchronous links is that the sub-process on the server cannot return information to the calling sub-process on the client. A special way for sending information back to the client is required. In addition, a special error handling mechanism is required to handle errors on the receiving side.
    IDOCs may be more changeable from release to release.
    IDOCs  are poorly documented.
    BAPIs are a subset of the RFC-enabled function modules, especially designed as Application Programming Interface (API) to the SAP business object, or in other words: are function modules officially released by SAP to be called from external programs.
    BAPIs are called synchronously and (usually) return information.
    For BAPIs the client code needs to do the appropriate error handling.
    Problems with synchronous links occur if the communication line or the server is temporarily not available. If this happens, the sub-process on the client cannot be finished (otherwise there would be data inconsistencies).
    Synchronous links have the advantage that the sub-process on the server can return values to the sub-process on the client that has started the link.
    BAPIs are not totally immune to upgrades.
    BAPIs are reasonably well documented.
    Reward points if useful.

  • Diff between Thin client and Rich client

    Hi Everyone,
              Can someone give me a clear picture of the what is the diff between Thin client and Rich client.

    thick client (rich client) has/stores all the data inside itself
    so it can do application processing without the server with data
    thin client uses resources from host computer (from server)
    and wihtout that you are not able to work with that kind of client
    does that answer your question ?

  • Diff between Seeburger Adapter and File Adapter

    Hi All,
             My company needs to interact with some banks and the banks are particular that they want SFTP, which is not supported by  File Adapter, so we have decided to go with Seeburger adapter.
    Now what are the differences between File adapter and seeburger adapter?
    I believe that Seeburger adapter does not support File Content Conversion, Archiving etc.
    Could you all pls put some light on the diff between file adapter and seeburger adapter when it comes to dealing with files?

    You are aware with working of File Adapter.
    The most direct way of using the Seeburger adaptors is to configure the BIC as a module. There is a software component from seeburger called bicmapper which will allow you to
    1. Define or import the inbound message metadefinition in various formats ( edifact, xml,...)
    2. Using a mapping create an xml variant as the output metadefinition or edifact in the other direction.
    3. Create a one to one mapping between input en output.
    4. Export the metadata in xsd or sda format for import in XI
    5. Generate an SDA which can be deployed in XI and used as a module.
    Have a look here,

  • Diff between Project Landscape and System landscape

    Hai Gurus
    Explain the thread
    Thanks & Regards

    Landscape is like a server system or like a layout of the servers or some may even call it the architecture of the servers viz. SAP is divided into three different lanscape DEV, QAS and PROD.
    DEV would have multiple clients for ex: 190- Sandbox, 100- Golden, 180- Unit Test.
    QAS may again have mutiple clients for ex: 300- Integration Test, 700 to 710 Training.
    PROD may have something like a 200 Production.
    These names and numbers are the implementer's discreet on how they want it or they have been using in their previous implementations or how is the client's business scenario.
    Now whatever you do in the Sandbox doesn't affect the other servers or clients. Whenever you think you are satisfied with your configuration and you think you can use it moving forward, you RE-DO it in the golden client (remember, this is a very neat and clean client and you cannot use it for rough usage).
    As you re-do everything that you had thought was important and usable, you get a transport request pop up upon saving everytime. You save it under a transport request and give your description to it. Thus the configuration is transported to the Unit Test client (180 in this example).
    You don't run any transaction or even use the SAP Easy Access screen on the 100 (golden) client. This is a configuration only client. Now upon a successful tranport by the Basis guy, you have all the configuration in the Testing client, just as it is in the Golden client. The configuration remains in sync between these two clients.
    But in the Testing client you can not even access SPRO (Display IMG) screen. It's a transaction only client where you perform the unit test. Upon a satisfactory unit test, you move the good configuration to the next SERVER (DEV).
    The incorrect or unsatisfactory configuration is corrected in Golden (may again as well be practised in the sandbox prior to Golden) and accordingly transported back to 180 (Unit Test) until the unit test affected by that particular config is satisfactory.
    The Golden client remains the 'database' (if you wanna call it that) or you may rather call it the 'ultimate' reference client for all the good, complete and final configuration that is being used in the implementation.
    In summary:
    Landscape : is the arrangement for the servers
    IDES : is purely for education purpose and is NOT INCLUDED in the landscape.
    DEVELOPMENT : is where the the consultants do the customization as per the company's requirement.
    QUALITY : is where the core team members and other members test the customization.
    PRODUCTION : is where the live data of the company is recorded.
    A request will flow from Dev->Qual->Prod and not backwards.
    1. Sandbox server:
    In the initial stages of any implementation project, You are given
    a sandbox server where you do all the configuration/customization as per the companies business process.
    2. Development Server:
    Once the BBP gets signed off, the configuration is done is development server and saved in workbench requests, to be transported to Production server.
    3. Production Server:
    This is the last/ most refined client where the user will work after project GO LIVE. Any changes/ new develpoment is done is development client and the request is transported to production.
    These three are landscape of any Company. They organised their office in these three way. Developer develop their program in Development server and then transport it to test server. In testing server tester check/test the program and then transport it to Production Server. Later it will deploy to client from production server.
    Presentaion Server- Where SAP GUI have.
    Application Server - Where SAP Installed.
    Database Server - Where Database installed.

  • What exactly is the diff between main window and variable window

    what exactly is the diff between main window and variable window in SAP script?

    MAIN WINDOW :- In a main window you display text and data, which can cover several pages (flow text). As soon as a main window is completely filled with text and data, the system continues displaying the text in the main window of the next page. It automatically triggers the page break.
    You can define only have one window in a form as main window.
    The main window must have the same width on each page, but can differ in height.
    A page without main window must not call itself as next page, since this would trigger an endless loop. In such a case, the system automatically terminates after three pages.
    VARIABLE WINDOW :- The contents of variable windows is processed again for each page, on which the window appears. The system outputs only as much text as fits into the window. Text exceeding the window size is truncated; the system does not trigger a page break. Unlike constant windows, the page windows declared as variable windows may have different sizes on different form pages.
    As far as the processing of the window contents is concerned, the system currently treats constant and variable windows alike. The only difference is that constant windows have the same size throughout the form.
    hope this will be useful.
    If useful then reward points.

  • What is the exact diff between  At New  and On Chnage

    hello all
    what is the exact diff between  At New  and On Chnage in control breaks statements. and when  shall we go for At new & when shall we go for On change on events.
    Plz tell with with some code.

    Hi ,
    Using at new
    Each time the value of c changes, the lines of code between at new and endat are executed. This block is also executed during the first loop pass or if any fields to the left of c change. Between at and endat, the numeric fields to the right of c are set to zero. The non-numeric fields are filled with asterisks (*). If there are multiple occurrences of at new, they are all executed. at end of behaves in a similar fashion.
    Using the on change of Statement
    Another statement you can use to perform control break processing is on change of. It behaves in a manner similar to at new.
    The following points apply:
    u2022     If the value of any of the variables (v1, v2, and so on) changes from one test to the next, the statements following on change of are executed.
    u2022     If no change is detected and else is specified, the statements following else are executed.
    on change of differs from at new in the following respects:
    u2022     It can be used in any loop construct, not just loop at. For example, it can be used within select and endselect, do and enddo, or while and endwhile, as well as inside get events.
    u2022     A single on change of can be triggered by a change within one or more fields named after of and separated by or. These fields can be elementary fields or field strings. If you are within a loop, these fields do not have to belong to the loop.
    u2022     When used within a loop, a change in a field to the left of the control level does not trigger a control break.
    u2022     When used within a loop, fields to the right still contain their original values; they are not changed to contain zeros or asterisks.
    u2022     You can use else between on change of and endon.
    u2022     You can use it with loop at it where . . ..
    u2022     You can use sum with on change of. It sums all numeric fields except the one(s) named after of.
    u2022     Any values changed within on change of remain changed after endon. The contents of the header line are not restored as they are for at and endat.

    both are used for same purpose
    interactive report means an output list which displays basic details & allow user to interact, so that a new list is populated based on user-selection. With interactive list, the user can actively control data retrieval and display during the session.
    I suggest to use ALV.by using ALV we can display in Grid as well as list format.
    Output format will be good . Sorting,Filtering facilities are provided by itself.We can have column headings also.

  • What exactly is the diff between client dependant and client independant te

    Hi gurus,
    What is the diff between client independant and client dependant term.. I initially had a confusion related to client independant and client dependant Transport requests, where else are these words applicable, do they apply to data as well, if so how? any links to help me understand the difference..

    Hi Kishore,
    Client Independant: These objects are not specific to any client. And it is universal which can be viewed,changed across the clients.
    Client Dependant: These are the objects can be viewed, changed for the client for which it has been assigned. Other clients do not have access on these objects.
    In SAP, all objects are finally stored as tables. "Mandt" is key field which determines whether the object is client dependant or not.
    Client Independant transport requests will make the transported objects available across the clients. and Client dependent transport request make the objects available only for the client mentioned by field "Mandt"

  • Diff between sap query and abap query

    diff between sap query and abap query

    ABAP query is mostly used by functional consultants.
    SAP Query :
    The SAP Query application is used to create lists not already contained in the SAP standard system. It has been designed for users with little or no knowledge of the SAP programming language ABAP. SAP Query offers users a broad range of ways to define reporting programs and create different types of reports such as basic lists, statistics, and ranked lists.
    SAP Query's range of functions corresponds to the classical reporting functions available in the system. Requirements in this area such as list, statistic, or ranked list creation can be met using queries.
    All the data required by users for their lists can be selected from any SAP table created by the customer.
    To define a report, you first have to enter individual texts, such as titles, and select the fields and options which determine the report layout. Then you can edit list display in WYSIWYG mode whenever you want using drag and drop and the other toolbox functions available.
    ABAP Query,:
    As far as I Believe, is the use of select statements in the ABAP Programming. This needs a knowledge of Open SQL commands like Select,UPdtae, Modify etc. This has to be done only by someone who has a little bit of ABAP experience.
    To sum up, SAP queries are readymade programs given by SAP, which the user can use making slight modification like the slection texts, the tables from which the data is to be retrieved and the format in which the data is to be displayed.ABAP queries become imperative when there is no such SAP query existing and also when there is a lot of customizing involved to use a SAP Query directly
