    Yes it is the same.

    Yes, your XI system is using SP 09.

    You can also see the SP details here: SAP Logan Pad ---> Login to your XI system --> System --> Status.

    Regards,

    Abhishek.

    1. A service pack (in short SP) is a collection of updates, fixes and/or enhancements to a software program delivered in the form of a single installable package. Service packs are usually numbered, and thus shortly referred to as SP1, SP2, etc. It is notable that they may bring, besides bug fixes, entirely new features.

    For the ABAP parts of usage type PI, this is the implementation of support packages. For the Java parts, the deployment with the Java Support Package Manager (JSPM) is used.

    You can find currently available support packages on SAP Service Marketplace at service.sap.com/sp-stacks.

    A description of how to apply support packages is available in SAP Note 879289.
