    The SAP BC (Basis Components) is the root of the SAP Applications ERP software. It provides the runtime environment for the rest of the R/3 Applications. It ensures that applications are optimally integrated in the system environment. The SAP Basis Components contains powerful tools such as CCMS (Computing Center Management System) for easy system administration. It is also provides the interfaces to the distribute system components and third-pary vendors (EDI, RFC etc.).

    WAS : Web Application Server , Just like any Server it provide Services to its clients.

    Information about WAS

    Web Application Server Frequently Asked Questions: SAP J2EE Engine 6.20

    Information about BASIS

    Basis system administrators monitor the load balancing and performance of the system. They are also responsible for Basis services such as starting and stopping a system.

    The tasks are:

    Load balancing administration

    Instance administration

    Performance analysis

    System configuration

    Basis services such as starting and stopping a system and its servers

    i personally feel, understanding the System Architecture is more important for BASIS. for this you can refer any SAP Guides which are available @ Service MarketPlace.

    to start as BASIS administrator, it is always better to learn step by step..as follows.

    starting & stopping of SAP instances..

    1) User administration-> creation of new users, giving necessary authorizations (roles & profiles), creating new roles as & when required.

    2) Transport managment-> understanding what is a change request, how to tranport a TR from 1 system to another, creation of new tranport profiles.

    3) general monitoring of work processes etc..

    4) importing support packs etc..

    5) kernel upgrades..

    6) sAp installations..

    i am sure if u start learning in this direction, you will a good understanding over SAP as BASIS administrator.

    Thanks
