Difference between SPAM and SAINT in SAP BASIS

Romil Tripathi || 13 Feb 2015 2:25 pm || 2

Hello Experts,


What is the main difference between SPAM and SAINT.

We know that spam is used for support package upgrade and saint for addons.

Is it possible to do viceversa?

    You can use SAINT for installing add on with it's subsequent support packages. means new add on and along with it's support packages in one step. you can't use SPAM to install add on. it's only for importing support packages for existing add on components in the system. you can use SUM tool for add on installation and stack upgrade.
