Integration of Native SAP HANA Development Objects in ABAP
The integration of native SAP HANA development objects in ABAP allows for seamless incorporation of powerful HANA functionalities into ABAP applications.
There are several ways to integrate native SAP HANA development objects in ABAP:
- CDS-Views (Core Data Services): CDS-Views are used to define data models in ABAP. They enable access to data from native HANA tables, calculation views, or SQLScript functions, and their utilization in ABAP applications. CDS-Views offer advanced features such as data aggregation, join operations, and filtering.
- AMDP (ABAP Managed Database Procedures): AMDP allows for the definition of database-side procedures in ABAP that are executed directly in SAP HANA. With AMDP, complex calculations and data manipulations can be performed directly in the HANA database, and the results can be utilized in ABAP applications.
- ABAP Data Dictionary: Native HANA tables and views can be defined and utilized in the ABAP Data Dictionary. These tables and views are created and managed at the HANA level, and data can be read from and written to them in ABAP applications.
- Native SQL: ABAP provides the capability to execute native SQL queries to access SAP HANA data. With SQLScript, complex queries can be created, and the results can be utilized in ABAP applications.
The integration of native SAP HANA development objects in ABAP requires specific knowledge and skills, particularly in handling HANA-specific technologies such as CDS-Views and AMDP.
It is recommended to involve experienced SAP developers or consultants to ensure a smooth and effective integration.
It is also important to note that the integration of native HANA development objects in ABAP may require appropriate HANA licensing, and certain functionalities may only be available from specific SAP product versions.
To ensure correct and compliant integration, it is advisable to follow the official SAP documentation and specific guidelines provided by SAP.
