ABAP, short for Advanced Business Application Programming, is a high-level programming language created by SAP SE. The language is used to develop applications for the company's ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system. ABAP was one of the first languages to integrate business logic into software and has evolved to support object-oriented programming principles. It includes features like data dictionary objects, modularization techniques, communication interfaces, and comprehensive debugging tools. ABAP can interact with databases using SQL statements or accessing information from the underlying RDBMS directly using Open SQL or Native SQL commands.
