Utilities for monitoring and managing databases
The presentation layer is based on the software components, collectively called "SAP GUI". This includes several possible implementation variants: for example, SAP GUI for HTML (Web GUI) and Web Dynpro for ABAP (WDA). Since the respective GUI depends entirely on the concrete application, the presentation layer looks very different in practice.
SAP Basis represents the cornerstone of the SAP system, i.e. the foundation without which the system cannot function. Furthermore, it includes some administration tools and middleware programs. These programs can be used with the help of SAP Basis independently of the operating system and database used.
SAP Basis - operation, structure and definition
After the addition of Java Stack (the applications developed in J2EE, BSP, JSP, etc.), the security standard for business processes was increased. Both ABAP and Java stack can be monitored from one platform. Netweaver supports standard protocols such as HTTP, SMTP, XML, SOAP, SSO, WEBDAV, WSDL, WMLSSO, SSL, X.509 and Unicode format (text processing representation).
For these cases, you should take a closer look at the DBACOCKPIT transaction. This transaction provides you with many other database management features, an editor that allows you to easily execute your SQL queries against your SAP system. This method displays the result in the GUI shortly after the query is sent. How to execute a SQL query To call the editor for SQL queries in DBACOCKPIT, the user must: The user needs corresponding rights to execute the transactions SM49 and SM69. STOR and SMSS must be cultivated in the S_ADMI_FCD permission object. SQL queries must maintain the database connection. To get the current status of a database connection, see the DBCONT table. Rights for calling the table(s) to be retrieved must be assigned. For more details, see the section "Further information on DBACOCKPIT" in this blog post.
"Shortcut for SAP Systems" makes it easier and quicker to complete a number of SAP basis tasks.
In the project "the SAP basis of Tomorrow", current questions of the companies as well as the question of the SAP basis of the future were discussed and worked out with regard to the IT landscape, processes and organisational structure.
In this case, the critical SAP permissions are usually predefined by special verification software.
