                                                                          Document on BADI
After completing this document you will be able to,

  • Understand what Business Add In's (BADIs) are
  • Define BADIs
  • Implement BADIs
  • Use BADIs
  • Create an implementation for an existing SAP BADI
  • Create Multiple Use BADIs
  • Create Filter Dependent BADI   


-          Traditional way of doing code modifications - Exits

-          3 Tier Architecture For Presentation Server
-          Field Exits

-          Screen Exits

-          Menu Exits For Application Server
-          Programs -> Program exits -> call customer function -> Include At Database Level
-          Table -> SE11 -> Go to -> Append Structure

-          With BAdIs you can make changes only at the Application Layer.

-          The traditional way of doing code modifications was via User exits.

-          As per SAP's 3 Tier Architecture, at the Presentation layer you had Field Exits, Screen Exits and Menu Exits. At the Application layer you had Program exits; at the Database layer you could append structures to the existing SAP structures.  

-          Business Add-Ins is a new SAP enhancement technique based on [[ABAP Objects]]  
-          They can be inserted into the SAP system based on specific user requirement 
-          Business Add-Ins should be considered generalized Business Transaction 
-          Events that can be used to bundle program, menu and screen enhancements into a single add-in.

-          Each Business Add-In has :

    • at least one Business Add-In definition
    • a Business Add-In interface
    • a Business Add-In class that implements the interface  
      -          In order to enhance a program a Business Add-In must first be defined 
      -          Subsequently two classes are automatically generated :  
      o   An interface with 'IF_EX_' inserted between the first and second characters of the BAdI name

o   An adapter class with 'CL_EX_' inserted between the first and second characters of the BAdI name.

o   The Application developer creates an interface for this Add-InEnhancement management generates an adapter class for implementing the interface

o   This opens a path for custom implementations to be created by partners or customers.

o   By instantiating the adapter class in the application program, its corresponding methods can be used

BADI Enhancement options
o   In the business Add INS, all the components of an options are grouped together 
o   Program Enhancements: Functional enhancements of the program are defined in the form of interface methods and can be used with or without Menu Enhancements or Screen Enhancements  
o   Menu Enhancements: Function codes can be entered for a BADI for the corresponding menu entries in the user interface definition.
o   Screen Enhancements: Sub screen areas can be entered for a Business Add-In. Screen enhancements can be implemented for these in the form of sub screen screens.   

Defining BADIs
Enter BADI name 
Click on CREATE SE18 
To define a BADI use Sap Menu -> Tools -> ABAP Workbench -> Utilities -> Business Ad-Ins -> Definition  
For Application developers to include BADIs in their program they need to define an interface for their enhancement in the 'Business Add-Ins Initial Maintenance Screen'.  

Defining BADIs - Attributes
-          Enter short text 
-          BADI class is automatically created  
-          When a BADI is created, BADI class gets automatically created with the suffix 'CL_EX_' after the first character of the BADI name. 
-          Package: Specifies the Package in which this BADI resides.  
-          Multiple uses: With this option you can have multiple implementations for the same BADI 

  • Filter-Dependent: Business Add-Ins may be implemented depending on a specific filter value (example, country-specific versions: Distinct implementations of the BADI can be created for each country). A filtertype must be entered when defining your enhancement (a country or industry sector, for example). All methods created in the enhancement's interface have filter value 'FLT_VAL' as their import parameter. The method then selects the active implementation based on the data provided in the filter value  

BADI Definition - Save

-          Enter Package name

-          Save the BADI to a Package. (Z_DELTA_STUDENT##)

 Defining BADIs
-          Package name populated

-          BADI class created

-          A BADI class ZCL_EX_DELTA_7_0_DEMO1 is created automatically.

 Defining BADIs - Interface
-          BADI Interface is created automatically

-          To edit double click on the interface

-          An interface is created automatically with the suffix 'IF_EX_' after the first character of the BADI name

-          When you double click the interface 'ZIF_EX_DELTA_7_0_DEMO1 you will be taken into the class builder where you can define the methods, parameters and exceptions for that interface  Defining BADIs - Interface methods
-          Method name

-          Method type

-          Specify the methods in the Class Builder for the interface

-          Instance methods can access all of the attributes of a class, and can trigger all of the events of the class

-          Static methods can only access static attributes and trigger static events

-          Click on the Parameters button to specify any Import/Export parameters for the method  

Defining BADIs - Interface methods - parameters
-          Import and Export parameters

-          The Import/Export parameters for the method are specified in the 'Parameters' section

-          The type specifies whether the parameter is an Importing, Exporting, Changing or Returning parameter.

-          Check the Optional field if it is not a mandatory parameter

-          The type, default value and description of the parameter can be specified

 Defining BADIs - Exceptions
-          Exceptions

-          You can specify any exceptions in the Exceptions section.

-          For class based exceptions, check the checkbox 'Exception Classes'.

 BADI Implementation
-          Double click on the method to modify method code

-          During implementation creation, a class for implementing the enhancement's interface is also created

-          Navigate to the Class Builder by double-clicking the method.  

Implementing BADIs: Method implementation
-          Modify the method code within the METHOD/ENDMETHOD statements and activate

-          Insert the source code between the method and end method statements and activated.

-          Exception handling for the method can be handled in this section.  

Using a BADI
-          When a BADI is created, the enhancement manager automatically generates classes that implement the interface

-          In order to be able to call static methods, you must declare the corresponding class in ABAP Objects using the 'class ... definition load' statement

-          In the example having created a BADI for division, you can program the call for the BADI in the following manner:

-          Create an Interface Reference Variable in the program 'L_BADI_INSTANCE'

-          Perform the statement 'call method cl_exithandler ...' using the BADI and the interface reference variable.

-          Call method DIVIDE_NUMBERS using the interface reference variable L_BADI_INSTANCE.   

Create an Implementation for an SAP provided BADI
-          Find the corresponding BADI for the SAP transaction

-          Create a custom Implementation for the BADI

-          From the methods available in the BADI and select the appropriate method

-          Enter custom code in the method and activate

-          Execute SAP transaction and test if method with custom code is being invoked

 Finding a BADI - Transaction VD02
 Double click on the program name
Three BADIs used in this program

 BADIs - Execute the Change customer transaction
-          Click on SAVE button

-          VD02

-          Go into the change customer transaction VD02 and change the name of the customer

-          Click on the SAVE button.

-          This should invoke the BADI - CUSTOMER_ADD_DATA and subsequently execute the custom implementation.  

BADI Implementation - Invoked by VD02
-          Custom code for method invoked via BADI CUSTOMER_ADD_DATA

-          A break point is hard-coded into the method SAVE_DATA.

-          Execute transaction VD02 and change the customer address.

-          When you hit the SAVE button, the code entered in the SAVE_DATA method is executed.

 Multiple Use BADIs
-          Single Use Business Add-Ins

Do not select the multiple use checkbox from the Administration tab when defining a Single Use BADI

BADI has a single Implementation

Similar to procedures

Return values can be expected

Can use importing, changing and returning parameters N/A

A single implementation will be triggered by the application program

-          Multiple Use Business Add-INS

Select the Multiple use checkbox from the Administration tab when creating the BADI definition

BADI has multiple implementations

Similar to event calls

Cannot expect return values

Can use importing and changing parameters

For multiple implementations there is no sequence control because at the time of BADI definition it does not know which implementation will be active

All active implementations will be triggered by the application program using the BADI

 Multi Use BADIs - CUSTOMER_ADD_DATA Definition

-          A list of all the Implementations is displayed.

-          You can CREATE CHANGE, DISPLAY and DELETE Implementations from here.

-          Both BADIs will be triggered when the customer data is modified in transaction VD02 and saved.

-          Filter Dependent BADIs

-          Business Add-Ins can be implemented based on a specific filter value

-          If you want to call the implementation of a Business Add-In depending not only on one filter value but on various values, you can enter the name of a structure into the Filter type field. The structure can consist of several data elements that fulfill the above conditions for data elements Filter Dependent BADIs - BADI Definition

-          SE18

-          Click checkbox for

-          Filter Dependent BADIs

-          Enter Filter type

-          A filter type can be a data element or a structure. A data element must fulfill the following criteria:

-          The data element's domain may contain a maximum of 30 characters and must be of type Character.

-          The data element must 1). Either have a search help with a search help parameter of the same type as the data element and this parameter must serve as both the import and export parameter or 2). The element's domain must have fixed domain values or a value table containing a column with the same type as the data element.  

Filter Dependent BADIs - BADI Definition
-          Double click on the Interface to add parameters and methods

-          Enter text

-          When you double click on the interface it takes you to the class builder where you can add methods, parameters, and exceptions to the interface.

-          Filter Dependent BADIs - Interface - Method Definition

-          Now create an interface with a method. Be aware that for each method you create in the interface of a filter-dependent enhancement, the appropriate filter value must be defined as the import parameter so that the application program can provide the filter value to the enhancement method. The method then selects the active implementation for that value.  

Filter Dependent BADIs - Interface - Parameter Definition
-          FLT_VAL parameter preset for method

-          Create parameter to export tax rate

-          The filter value is declared using parameter flt_val and is preset in the list of parameters.
