Introduction to ABAP

In this course, programming with the coding language ABAP is introduced and applied to the leading standard software in the field of Enterprise Resource Planning, SAP ERP.

As a first step, basic concepts of ABAP are explained, and methods of developing software for SAP ERP are introduced. Further contents of the course are ABAP’s powerful Typeconcept, the modularization of programs, working with databases and especially the different possibilities of designing and customizing interfaces.

The contents are presented by using examples which have to be programmed by the participants directly on the system. Conclusively, the gained knowledge is further strengthened by solving a complex case study in a less guided way of teaching. An outlook on ABAP objects rounds off the course.

Learning targets

The course participants gain a basic knowledge of the coding language ABAP, its theoretical concepts and structure. They get to know the developing tools of the SAP ERP system and learn to use those for further software development.

After the course, students will be able to develop, maintain and advance software components in complex ERP environments. They will learn to handle complex problems and tasks, just like they could occur in a future job.

By working on the course, students will understand the process of developing software within an SAP ERP system. Due to the parallel work of several developers at the same time, this gains a special kind of complexity. Thus, course participants are being prepared for the practical use of ABAP as programmers, software engineers or in the context of different demanding tasks within an SAP ERP environment.
