Difference between BAPI Function Module and Remote Enable Function Module

Dear Experts,

I want to know the main difference between BAPI Function Module and Remote Enable Function Module ?

One main difference that I know is BAPI FM are declared in Methods of Business Object ie BAPI are methods of BOR where as Remote Enabled FM are not. What are other differences? Is it possible to convert a Remote Enable FM to BAPI FM .

regards

Manish

    If we are talking about standard SAP objects, then it simply means that the BAPI's interface will never change and that it is released for use either internally in the system or callable from an external system. Remote enabled functions are not necessarily released for use, and there is no guarantee that its interface will not change.

    Regards.

    "Is it possible to convert a Remote Enable FM to BAPI FM"

    For this point, a difference is that a BAPI cannot handle Exceptions..otherwise, i guess you can convert an RFC into a BAPI and use it like a normal RFC (apart from the differences Rich already mentioned).

    Thanks,
