Need help with SAP terminology & team development


I'm having a difficult time comprehending the SAP terminology in the JDI.

I've been doing Java development for 6 years now so I feel like I have a good handle on Java terminology. I do NOT have any ABAP experience.

What would help me is some documentation that explains the meaning and purpose of the following:

- Product

- Domain

- Software Component

- Activity

- Development Component

I've been going thru the "Tutorial for Scenario 2+: Development with a Track" documentation

The tutorial uses all these terms but it doesn't really explain them in detail or in such a way that someone with a Java background can understand them.

Does anyone know of any documentation about team programming that is more detailed than the tutorial?

Any help would be appreciated.
