Define: ABAP

This is a definition I found from the internet: ABAP (Advanced Business Application Programming) is a programming language created by the German software company SAP. It is currently positioned as the language for programming SAP's Web Application Server, part of its NetWeaver platform for building business applications. Its syntax is somewhat similar to COBOL.

From my opinion, ABAP is same like C++. I think the logic that be applied for C++ program also can be used while writing an ABAP report but a strong fundamental in SQL statement would be some advantages to the programmers because ABAP report is all about retriving date from database and populate it as a report to the users.

The basic keyword for ABAP are:
This is a simple program of ABAP:

data: num1 type i,
num2 type i,
num3 type i.

start-of-selection.
num3 = num1 * num2.

write:/ "The answer is:", num3.

end-of-selection.
