BADI's & BAPI's

Hi,

Pl throw light on the following issues.

1) What is BADI's & BAPI's?

2) Where it is used & how the same need to be used?

3) What are the deciding factors for selecting BADI or BAPI or an user exit?

4) I understand that user exits can be used only once & the BADI's can be used in different functionalities. Am i right?

Thanks in advance.

Chan

    hi,

    BADIs are used to enhance the standard functionality according to the client requirement where as BAPI are used for uploading data from legacy to sap.BAPIS are advanced to BDCs and BADIs are advanced to user exits.

    user exits can be implemented only once where as BADIs can be implemented any number of times.

    reward points if useful,

    siri

    HI

    BAPI - These are published programs which is used to upload data i

    nto SAP system.

    BADI - This is a program enhancement technique. SAP pr

    ovides BADI openings in the standard programs. You need to search for the s

    uitable BADI as ur requirement and then do the coding and plug in the progr

    am.

    The main diff

    bet BADI and USEREXIT is that in USEREXIT u code in the standard SAP progra

    m, hence any updation in the version of the standard program will lead to t

    he loss of ur coding. But same is not the case of BADI. Here the code remai

    ns outside the standard program.

    2. Both BDC and BAPI will work. For a

    njoi SAP transaction, prefer a BAPI over a BDC
