Good ABAP developers are indispensable for the optimal use of SAP products. The proprietary programming language from SAP is used in ERP, CRM, SCM software solutions of the group. Since the release of SAP NetWeaver Java can also be used in many areas. However, ABAP is usually the first choice thanks to its backward compatibility and performance.
ABAP is especially efficient as 4GL language, and comes with relatively fewer lines of code than other languages. Thanks to Open SQL support database queries can be integrated directly in ABAP code, which is a great advantage in the very database-savvy solutions from SAP. ABAP also includes an XML interface.
Traditional tasks for an ABAP developer
ABAP developers usually set up, customise and modernise SAP systems according to their clients’ needs. Even if a customised SAP system reaches its limits, the client will still have ideas to implement with the system. New add-ons and elements can then be developed with ABAP.
ABAP developers work object-oriented and can easily use reusable modules and abstract data types. In ABAP this is done by classes, interfaces and concepts such as inheritance and casting, just like in other object-oriented programming languages. The metadata of all ABAP programs are managed in an ABAP repository.
ABAP developers create extensions to dictionary elements, customer exits or develop entirely new business add-ins that are easily incorporated into existing applications in order to customise the SAP standard applications.
However, the development of web based applications with Web Dynpro, a technology that SAP introduced in the NetWeaver strategy, is becoming more and more popular thanks to its platform independence. SAP ERP and other products are then controlled via an SAP web application server. Java is also becoming more increasingly used alongside ABAP in Web Dynpro, which means that an ABAP developer should also be well-versed in Java for contracts of this type. The developer then has the flexibility to be able to use the most appropriate method for each individual case.
