    Hi,

    Sandboxes are generally PLAYGROUNDS for Consultants. Generally the DEV systems have one or Two clients created which are given to Consultants to work around with the customizations Generally the transports to and from these clients are avaoided... Once they feel its fine and OK they would perform the same CUST in the actual DEV client ( Unit Test Client) and then move it to QTY fro Integration testing.

    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.

    Once the BBP gets signed off, the configuration is done is development server and saved in workbench requests, to be transported to Production server.

    It is not necessary that every development environment has a sandbox. Most of them however, do have it.

    The dictionary meaning for the word sandbox says "a hole in the ground, or a box, filled with sand in which children can play". The actual meaning in the SAP context is not far from this. The sandbox is basically a place where the developers can do all sorts of experimenting when trying to learn something. They can usually do whatever they want.

    Hi

    Sandbox is one more instance of your server in SAP.

    Purpose of Sandbox is, like that of a scibbling pad. we can do sample code or sample config in Sandbox and test whether whatever is done is working fine or not. Sandbox could be used to do your R&D.

    Regards
