ABAP stands for Advanced Business Application Programming and means a high-level fourth generation application programming language, which was created in the 1980s by the German software company SAP. It is mostly used to develop business applications. ABAP programs reside in the SAP database and are edited using the ABAP Workbench tools, which include ABAP Editor, ABAP Dictionary, Repository, Menu Painter, Screen, Repository Information, Test and Analysis Tools, Function Builder, Data Modeler, and Workbench Organizer. They are compiled, debugged and run in the context of the SAP basis component, which is usually implemented as part of the SAP Web application server. The programs can be divided into reports and module tools. As it is an event-driven programming language, the actions of the user and system events control the execution of an application. ABAP is also imperative and object-oriented, server-side programming language. SAP Netweaver Application server allows the Integrated Development Environment for creating and Managing ABAP programs and source code. The ABAP programs are directly developed and saved on the Application Server. Programs written in ABAP are executed in the Application server’s runtime environment on Server Machine.

Questions and Answers related to ABAP Development
How is the SAP ABAP different from other programming languages?

It has roots in cobol and pascal so it is structured, and it tries to get as close as possible to business concepts as it can, without loosing the flexibility of a procedural program…”
SAP: Is it possible to set up a local environment for practicing ABAP development?
“Yes, there are numerous ways to do this, including a cloud-hosted option which you can run if you have an Amazon Web Services account, and which will cost you a little money to run.While you can get a lot of theoretical understanding of ABAP by using a trial system, what you are really looking for is experience in a real environment with a real solution like ERP, CRM etc. Understanding ABAP is one thing, but the real value comes from experience with SAP’s enterprise solutions.”
Will SAP ABAP be obsolete?
“There is a huge installed base of ABAP based solutions that will require attention for years to come. ABAP is still used for new developments. On September 26th 2017 , SAP announced the planned availability of ABAP as an additional development and runtime environment in SAP Cloud Platform. With ABAP in SAP Cloud Platform, ABAP developers can make use of their existing ABAP know-how to develop and run ABAP applications in the Cloud…”
