What is ABAP

ABAP (Advanced Business Application Programming) is a powerful programming language designed specifically for business needs within the SAP ecosystem. Its main strength lies in the mass processing of data and many tools for building secure business applications.

Some key points about ABAP:

  1. Origins: ABAP was initially the report language for SAP R/2 in the 1980s, enabling large corporations to build mainframe business applications for materials management, financial accounting, and management accounting.
  2. Evolution: Over time, ABAP evolved into a versatile fourth-generation programming language, supporting procedural and object-oriented programming, database access, unit testing, mass/parallel processing, RESTful and UX programming models, and tools for automated code checks. ABAP software developers also leverage modern programming principles, patterns, and practices.
  3. Usage:
