    HI

    The task of the client/server technology components is to provide a reusable runtime environment for other components that use the client server technology as the basis on which to process requests. The focus is on optimizing operating system resources (CPU, memory, etc.), in terms of performance, scalability, and robustness.

    In addition to the components in the SAP kernel there are programs that regulate data traffic in the network, such as the SAProuter and the SAP Web Dispatcher, as well as smaller monitoring and test programs.

    The SAP client/server architecture is developed on the SAP Web Application Server.

    SAP R/3 is based on a three tier client/server technology. Typically, it is made up of three functionally distinct layers namely: the user interface, business logic and database.

    The user interface, which is otherwise known as the presentation server displays the interface for users' communication with the SAP system. It is often referred to as the SAP GUI. As a matter of fact, it is a program called sapgui.exe. The application server is where the business logic and data manipulation takes place. Data processing, SAP administration tasks and client request/feedback management are handled within the business layer. The database layer is synonymous to the database server and it typically acts as a data repository for tables and other database objects and structures.

    Ideally, an R/3 system is composed of one database server, one or more application servers and one or more presentation servers. SAP Business One on the other hand is composed of a database server and one or more presentation servers.
