    Hi Raj,

    SAP R/3 is a client/server based application, utilizing a 3-tiered model. A presentation layer, or client, interfaces with the user. The application layer houses all the business-specific logic, and the database layer records and stores all the information about the system, including transactional and configuration data.

    SAP R/3 functionality is structured using its own proprietary language called ABAP (Advanced Business Application Programming). ABAP, or ABAP/4 is a fourth generation language (4GL), geared towards the creation of simple, yet powerful programs. R/3 also offers a complete development environment where developers can either modify existing SAP code to modify existing functionality or develop their own functions, whether reports or complete transactional systems within the SAP framework.

    ECC is ERP Central Component, basically the sap version, like ECC 5.0.

    Hope it helps. Please reward if useful.

    Thanks & Regards

    Hi Raj,

    There is no differences between R/3 and ECC.

    As ECC( Enterprise Central Component ) is a version of R/3.

    Now current version of R/3 is ECC 6.0.

    The other versions of R/3 are 3.0.3,1G,4.0B,4.6C,4.7EE etc.

    Thanks,

    Vinay

    Hi,

    SAP R/3 through version 4.6c consisted of various applications on top of SAP Basis, SAP's set of middleware programs and tools.

    When SAP R/3 Enterprise was launched in 2002, all applications were built on top of the SAP Web Application Server. Extension sets were used to deliver new features and kept the core as stable as possible. The Web Application Server contained all the capabilities of SAP Basis.

    The first edition of mySAP ERP was launched in 2003 and bundled previously separate products, including SAP R/3 Enterprise, SAP Stategic Enterprise Management (SEM) and extension sets. The SAP Web Application Server was wrapped into NetWeaver, which was also introduced in 2003.

    A complete architecture change took place with the introduction of mySAP ERP edition 2004. <b>R/3 Enterprise was replaced with the introduction of ERP Central Component (SAP ECC). The SAP Business Warehouse, SAP Strategic Enterprise Management and Internet Transaction Server were also merged into SAP ECC, allowing users to run them under one instance.</b> Architectural changes were also made to support an enterprise services architecture to transition customers to a services-oriented architecture.

    More than 2,300 customers are using the latest version of mySAP ERP, since it was released earlier this year, according to SAP. SAP reported a 20% growth in new ERP license deals in the second quarter of 2005.
