ABAP (Advanced Business Application Programming)
ABAP is a programming language that runs in the SAP ABAP runtime environment, created and used by SAP for the development of application programs including:
- Module Pool Programming
- Data conversions
- User Exits & BADI
All of R/3’s applications and even parts of its basis system were developed in ABAP.
ABAP is an event-driven programming language. User actions and system events control the execution of an application.
ABAP is also called ABAP/4. The “4” in ABAP/4 stands for “Fourth Generation Language” or 4GL.
The ABAP Workbench is used by SAP for the development of standard and custom application software. The ABAP Workbench is also used to create dictionary objects. It consists of the following components −
- ABAP Editor is used to maintain programs.
- ABAP Dictionary is used to maintain Dictionary objects.
- Repository Browser is used to display a hierarchical structure of the components in a package.
- Menu Painter is used to develop graphical user interfaces including menu bars and toolbars.
- Screen Painter is used to maintain screen components for online programs.
- Repository Information System contains information about development and runtime objects, such as data models, dictionary types and table structures, programs, and functions.
- Test and Analysis Tools, such as the Syntax Check and the Debugger.
- Function Builder, which allows to create and maintain function groups and function modules.
- Data Modeler, a tool which supports graphical modeling.
- Workbench Organizer, which maintains multiple development projects and manages their distribution.
Report programs produce lists and can be divided into classical reports and interactive reports.
- Classical reports do not allow interaction by the user; therefore, the basic list contains extensive information that the user must often sort through to find relevant data.
- Interactive reports allow interaction by the user; therefore, the user can produce secondary, detailed lists of the basic list by choosing the relevant data and requesting more information.
- SAP Query or Ad-hoc Query or InfoSet Query is a tool that allows the end-user to design different queries based on different input and output parameters in the SAP system according to the requirement. This is one of the reporting tools majorly used in the HR Module to pull data from relational databases. InfoSet Query is suitable for reporting in all areas of the SAP R/3 system.
Ad-Hoc query provides three different kinds of reports −
- Basic List − Simple reports.
- Statistics − Reports with statistical functions such as average, percentage, etc.
- Ranked List − For analytical reports.
Transaction code used to access ad-hoc Queries −
- SQ01 − Maintain Queries
- SQ02 − Display InfoSet
- SQ03 − Maintain User Groups
