    Hi Elton,

    I am not exactly sure about what you see as a business case, but let me try to give my point of view:

    First of all, you are referring to RFCs, so this is an important aspect, since all BAPIs are developed in a way that you should be able to use the data from nearly every other platform. One of my first jobs twenty years ago was actually building a web shop with a shopping cart, which was sent to R/3 using the BAPI_SALESORDER_CREATEFROMDAT2. I actually programmed a plugin for a webserver that could call RFCs using the LIBRFC in C. So there are many more possibilites to call RFCs especially BAPIs, there is a library for Java as well as for DotNET.

    Since there a many BAPIs available you are able to use many different business cases within SAP without programming anything inside your system.

    A second aspect to BAPIs is, that they are the first line of standard functionality a programmer should use. So whenever you are programming something, that uses SAP standard functionality, the first step should be to look for a BAPI solving your problem. Here the RFC aspect doesnt count much, but the reliability of the interface is helpful. Usually BAPIs interfaces aren't changed once released so. This has its advantages.


    I hope these unorganized thoughts help to answer your question.


    Cheers,

    Peter

    • Hi Elton,

      I understand your situation. What you need is lots of practice in ABAP programming, there is no easy answer oder single advice I can give. If you're a progamming beginner there is much to learn, not just ABAP but also general ways of how to build programs.

      And if you see requirements for BAPI knowledge in a job description I would think this goes towards understanding the SAP business processes, not all but some, since BAPIs are actually the primary ways to automate the standard business processes.

      Cheers,

      Peter
