The ABAP language environment, including the syntax checking, code generation
and runtime system is part of the SAP Basis component. SAP Basis is the
technological platform that supports the entire range of SAP applications, now
typically implemented in the framework of the SAP Web Application Server. In
that sense SAP Basis can be seen as the virtual machine on which SAP
applications run. Like any operating system, SAP Basis contains both low-level
services and high-level tools for end users and administrators. These tools can
be executables running directly on the underlying operating system, transactions
developed in ABAP, or Web-based programs.
SAP Basis also provides a layer of abstraction between the business applications
and the operating system and database. This ensures that applications do not
depend directly upon a specific server or database platform and can easily be
ported from one platform to another.
