    Hello Sachin,

    A transport layer is used for grouping all the development objects that will always use the same transport routes within the same development system. Transport layers are assigned to all the objects that come from a specified development system.

    This is a central concept for the Transport Management System, and is a requirement to create a transport layer before any development project can start.

    If no consolidation route is assigned to a transport layer, or if the transport layer does not exist for the system where objects are modified or repaired,then these modifications are considered local and therefore cannot be transported to other systems.

    Every development class is assigned a transport layer which defines the route for transports coming from the same development system.

    for Package builder details check following link:

      Hello Sachin,

      Just if you read the description i provided carefully - then you need transport layer so that these objects can be transferred to a different system and should not be created locally.

      and if you checked the help link i sent you then it says :

      -


      Software component

      The software component describes a set of development objects that can only be delivered in a single unit. Later, you will assign all the main packages of the structure package to this software component.

      -


      Software components are the component packages belonging to the different applications.

      Best Regards
