    By default CAP has a "managed" behavior using generic handlers (e.g. for CRUD operations). To have a kind of unmanaged scenario you can register your own event handlers (e.g. for Node based services like described here: For instance you can register your own handler for the service create event on a specific entity.

    Regarding the difference between RAP and CAP:

    - RAP: Available for ABAP on SAP Cloud Platform, ABAP environment and On-Premise ABAP Platform Systems (e.g. S/4HANA 1909).

    - CAP: Available for Node and Java. Running on e.g. SAP Cloud Platform Cloud Foundry environment or SAP HANA XS Advanced.
