Advanced Business Application Language

Advanced Business Application Language (ABAP) is a programming language for developing applications in SAP's R/3 system. ABAP was one of the first languages to combine database access with procedural and object-oriented features. It typically runs on SAP's NetWeaver ABAP application server platform, which is part of the company's technical foundation for many customer applications including its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software. ABAP allows developers to create complex business logic and user interfaces while also providing built-in support for different data types, exception handling mechanisms, and integration with other systems through communication protocols such as RFC (Remote Function Call). The language has evolved over time to support modern development paradigms like web-based applications through technologies such as Web Dynpro ABAP and more recently cloud-based development using platforms like SAP HANA Cloud Platform (HCP).
