    An SAP client, sometimes referred to as the “golden client” that is carefully managed to minimize the opportunities for data corruption. It typically is the source client used in replications to training and sandbox clients. (Master Client)

    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.

    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.

    If we consider a DEVELOPMENT system, there will be different types of clients in it (like Sandbox,Customization,Test etc).The data which is maintained in these clients will not be accessible from any other client.The data which is local to the client is known as Client Independent. Where as, some data will be common to all the clients in the system like currency,company calender, measurement units etc. This is common to all the client and can be accessible from any client. Hence it is called as client-independent data which are nothing but objects.
