ABAP Objects



In this course, you will strengthen your ABAP skills by gaining a full understanding of the use of object-oriented programming techniques, and how to apply them practically in your ABAP applications.

This course is aimed exclusively at participants without any knowledge of object-oriented programming.

You should attend both BC400 (ABAP Workbench Foundations) and BC401 (ABAP Objects) to gain in-depth understanding of the ABAP Workbench as well as the ABAP programming language. (ABAP consists of procedural and object-oriented parts. This also reflected in these courses.)

This course is based on software release� SAP NetWeaver 7.40 SPS5, plus ABAP development tools.
