BAPI creation versus function module creation...

Hi,

I know the difference between BAPI and simple function module. I have also created custom function module.

But I have not worked on creation of Custom BAPIs.

Is there a much differece in creation of function module and BAPI?

If there is please throw some light on main differences or stepwise differences when I create BAPI versus function module ?

Thanks.

Regards,

Tushar.

    Hai Tushar

    what is BAPI?

    BAPI stands for Business API(Application Program Interface).

    I have answered this question before..

    A BAPI is remotely enabled function module ie it can be invoked from remote programs like standalone JAVA programs, web interface etc..

    You can make your function module remotely enabled in attributes of Function module but

    A BAPI are standard SAP function modules provided by SAP for remote access. Also they are part of Businees Objest Repository(BOR).

    Please check out this thread..

    Also refer to the following links..

    Java Connector(JCO) can call not only BAPI's but also the function modules which are remotely enabled..

    BAPI's as i said earlier are remotely enabled function modules..

    Hence, JCO can call also BAPI's(n not only BAPI's as u mentioned).

    Thanks & regards
