SAP and EBS

Recently i posted my views for the questions on a forum, having it here for discussion.....


Following are my understanding and only my personal view.


1. Can anyone please clarify what's the diff in SAP and EBS.

SAP and EBS are ERP solutions as you know, business wise its just a comfort factor which makes customer to choose either SAP or Oracle. To be straight SAP doesnt allow you to do customizations as it can be done in Oracle, this is what makes SAP tightly integrated less error prone. Both use their own way of programming which is the answer for your second question below. SAP has its own standards and Oracle too has its legacy. For techincal details you can refer to the following link,

2. In SAP ABAP is used for programming purposes. what is equivalent in EBS to that.?

ABAP is a programing language created by SAP and it is similar to any other programming language. Its quite similar to COBOL. This was first used as a reporting purpose by SAP and later used extensively for application programing. For me equivalent for ABAP is PL/SQL in EBS or if i need to compare with reporting or form tool in EBS then it would be D2k.
