ABAP Objects Overview
ABAP Objects is an Object-Oriented extension to the ABAP Programming language and was introduced on SAP Basis Release 4.5.
SAP Release 4.6 delivered the complete version of ABAP Objects with the introduction of Inheritance.
ABAP Objects is indicated for those who want to guarantee agility during initial development, minimize effort on modifications and rework, and be able to enhance existing applications and create complex applications in a simple way...
The principal features of ABAP Objects are:
...The ABAP runtime support for both procedural and ABAP Objects programming models enables you to use ABAP objects in any program. I.e. in executable programs, module pools, function pools etc. This enables you to use new techniques based on ABAP Objects, such as interfaces, without the need to completely rewrite your existing code.
In OO Programming the only structuring units are classes. Instead of working with global data, you work with objects, which are instances of classes. These objects encapsulate the state and behavior of self-contained parts of the application.
The application state is represented by attributes, that supersede the global variables in the classic procedural approach.
The application behavior is determined by methods, that modify the objects attributes, or call methods of other objects.
Although a pure OO world is technically possible with the SAP environment, most real-world implementations use a mixture of procedural ABAP and ABAP Objects.
