ABAP (Advanced Business Application Programming) is a programming language developed by SAP. Many business applications of an SAP system are written in ABAP. ABAP has been optimized for developing highly-scalable business applications. Customers can use the ABAP Workbench for developing completely new applications as well as enhancing and modifying SAP standard applications. In doing so, the entire, mighty infrastructure of the AS ABAP can be used, which also supports the creation of the most complex applications by large groups of developers. The Application Server ABAP provides the runtime environment for programs written in ABAP.

SAP OverView:

SAP over the years, has grown and evolved to become the world premier provider of client/server business solutions for which it is so well known today. The SAP R/3 enterprise application suite for open client/server systems has established a new standards for providing business information management solutions.SAP product are consider excellent but not perfect.  The main problems with software product is that it can never be perfect.

The main advantage of using SAP as your company ERP system is that SAP have a very high level of integration among its individual applications which guarantee consistency of data throughout the system and the company itself.

  1. SAP means Systems, applications and products.
  2. It was founded in 1972 by former IBM employers in Mannheim, Germany
  3. SAP was the first Market Leader, to integrate a corporation’s worldwide functions tightly into one application

Introduction to ABAP/4

ABAP (Advanced Business Application Programming) is a programming language developed by SAP. Many business applications of an SAP system are written in ABAP. ABAP has been optimized for developing highly-scalable business applications. Customers can use the ABAP Workbench for developing completely new applications as well as enhancing and modifying SAP standard applications. In doing so, the entire, mighty infrastructure of the AS ABAP can be used, which also supports the creation of the most complex applications by large groups of developers. The Application Server ABAP provides the runtime environment for programs written in ABAP.

ABAP is multilingual programming language hence different code can be maintained based on logon languages. ABAP is the only tool available in SAP for developing applications and custom reports. ABAP Workbench contains all tools that we need to develop a application or custom report. It handles control structures and modularization concepts. When the report is generated, system creates a run time abject which is executed when the report is executed.

  1. Multi Lingual
  2. Only Tool for developing all SAP applications & custom reports.
  3. ABAP Workbench contains all tools, we need to create ABAP/4 Programs.
  4. ABAP/4 program contains all usual control structures and modularization concepts.
  5. During report generation, the system creates a Run Time object. When we execute the report, the system executes this Run Time Object.
  6. For Execution of ABAP/4 Programs you need a special Run Time Environment .
  7. This Run Time Environment is responsible for calling the individual program modules one after the other .
  8. This Run Time Environment is nothing but ABAP/4 Processor .

Course Objectives

All application programs, along with parts of the R/3 Basis system, are written in the ABAP Workbench using ABAP, SAP´s programming language. The individual components of application programs are stored in a special section of the database called the R/3 Repository.
Course objectives are:

  1. Understanding what ABAP/4 means and how to start developing solutions in SAP.
  2. Then you will be able to use different technologies as Reporting, Data Dictionary, Functions Modules, Dynpro processing and enhancements within others.
  3. Also, you will acquire tools to face problems on your own and give a proper solution.
ABAP main features are:
  1. Declaring data with several types and structures. This means that there is a wide range of options to model data to be used in a custom program.
  2. Operational elements for data manipulation, so you can compare in different ways that data and perform an action depending on that comparison.
  3. Control elements for controlling program flow, and this elements can be internal or external.
  4. Internal control elements examples can be branching (if, case) or looping (Loop, while).
  5. External control elements could be different types of events like user events or system events.
  6. Event elements for reacting to external events, so in a program is possible to control external events like, input fields filled, start of selection, end of selection, or events happening in a screen.
  7. Operating/Database system-independent programming. This means that each work process in ABAP application server contains a database interface, that converts each request into correct SQL statements to retrieve information.

Continuing with that, ABAP contains a subset of SQL called Open SQL to perform queries, and is used in the interface named before.
