Architecture of the InterfacesLocate this document in the navigation structure


Applications such as SAP systems use interfaces to access SAP MaxDB databases.

If the application (and thus the SAP MaxDB interface) is on another computer than the database, it connects to the database on the remote computer via an SAP MaxDB X server (communication server). For more information, see Global Listener and X Servers.

Note that the JDBC interface needs an X server even if it is installed on the same computer as the database.
