Hi

It is BUSINESS ADD-ONS not ABAP add ons

They are similar to User exits and which are used mainly for the Enjoy Transactions like ME21N and VL01N

see the doc

DEFINING THE BADI

1) execute Tcode SE18.

2) Specify a definition Name : ZBADI_SPFLI

3) Press create

4) Choose the attribute tab. Specify short desc for badi.. and specify the type :

multiple use.

5) Choose the interface tab

6) Specify interface name: ZIF_EX_BADI_SPFLI and save.

7) Dbl clk on interface name to start class builder . specify a method name (name,

level, desc).

Method level desc

Linese;ection instance methos some desc

😎 place the cursor on the method name desc its parameters to define the interface.

Parameter type refe field desc

I_carrid import spfli-carrid some

I_connid import spefi-connid some

9) save , check and activate…adapter class proposed by system is

ZCL_IM_IM_LINESEL is genereated.

IMPLEMENTATION OF BADI DEFINITION

1) EXECUTE tcode se18.choose menuitem create from the implementation menubar.

2) Specify aname for implementation ZIM_LINESEL

3) Specify short desc.

4) Choose interface tab. System proposes a name fo the implementation class.

ZCL_IM_IMLINESEL which is already generarted.

5) Specify short desc for method

6) Dbl clk on method to insert code..(check the code in “AAA”).

7) Save , check and activate the code.

Look for “BBB” sample program.

write:/ 'Flight info of:', i_carrid, i_connid.

select * from sflight

into corresponding fields of table it_flights

where carrid = i_carrid

and connid = i_connid.

loop at it_flights into wa_flights.

write:/ wa_flights-fldate,

wa_flights-planetype,

wa_flights-price currency wa_flights-currency,

wa_flights-seatsmax,

wa_flights-seatsocc.

endloop.

endloop.

check not wa_spfli-carrid is initial.

create object exit_ref.

exit_ref1 = exit_ref.

call method exit_ref1->lineselection

EXPORTING

i_carrid = wa_spfli-carrid

i_connid = wa_spfli-connid.

clear wa_spfli.

u can find BADI's in different ways...

1>First go to any transaction->iN THE menu bar SYSTEM->STATUS->Get the program name ->double click->u will go to the program attached to the tcode.Now search term will be CALL CL_EXITHANDLER.Now u will get list of BADI'S available..

2>Goto SE24->Give class name as CL_EXITHANDLER->Display->double click on get_instance mathod->Now u will go inside the method->Now put break point on the cl_exithandler.Now go to any transaction code and pass dat..U will see that it will be stopped on the break point which u set on the cl_exithandler...In the exit name u can find list of badi's attached to the tcode..

There are multiple ways of searching for BADI.

• Finding BADI Using CL_EXITHANDLER=>GET_INSTANCE

• Finding BADI Using SQL Trace (TCODE-ST05).

• Finding BADI Using Repository Information System (TCODE- SE84).

1. Go to the Transaction, for which we want to find the BADI, take the example of Transaction VD02. Click on System->Status. Double click on the program name. Once inside the program search for ‘CL_EXITHANDLER=>GET_INSTANCE’.

Make sure the radio button “In main program” is checked. A list of all the programs with call to the BADI’s will be listed.

The export parameter ‘EXIT_NAME’ for the method GET_INSTANCE of class CL_EXITHANDLER will have the user exit assigned to it. The changing parameter ‘INSTANCE’ will have the interface assigned to it. Double click on the method to enter the source code.Definition of Instance would give you the Interface name.

2. Start transaction ST05 (Performance Analysis).

Set flag field "Buffer trace"

Remark: We need to trace also the buffer calls, because BADI database tables are buffered. (Especially view V_EXT_IMP and V_EXT_ACT)

Push the button "Activate Trace". Start transaction VA02 in a new GUI session. Go back to the Performance trace session.

Push the button "Deactivate Trace".

Push the button "Display Trace".

The popup screen "Set Restrictions for Displaying Trace" appears.

Now, filter the trace on Objects:

• V_EXT_IMP

• V_EXT_ACT

Push button "Multiple selections" button behind field Objects

Fill: V_EXT_IMP and V_EXT_ACT

All the interface class names of view V_EXT_IMP start with IF_EX_. This is the standard SAP prefix for BADI class interfaces. The BADI name is after the IF_EX_.

So the BADI name of IF_EX_CUSTOMER_ADD_DATA is CUSTOMER_ADD_DATA

3. Go to “Maintain Transaction” (TCODE- SE93).

Enter the Transaction VD02 for which you want to find BADI.

Click on the Display push buttons.

Get the Package Name. (Package VS in this case)

Go to TCode: SE84->Enhancements->Business Add-inns->Definition

Enter the Package Name and Execute.

Here you get a list of all the Enhancement BADI’s for the given package MB.

The simplese way for finding BADI is

1. chooes Tcode Program & package for that Tcode.

2. Go to Tcode se18

3. Press F4

4. search by package or by program.

Hi,

Business Add-Ins are a new SAP enhancement technique based on ABAP Objects. They can be inserted into the SAP System to accommodate user requirements too specific to be included in the standard delivery. Since specific industries often require special functions, SAP allows you to predefine these points in your software.

As with customer exits two different views are available:

In the definition view, an application programmer predefines exit points in a source that allow specific industry sectors, partners, and customers to attach additional software to standard SAP source code without having to modify the original object.

In the implementation view, the users of Business Add-Ins can customize the logic they need or use a standard logic if one is available.

In contrast to customer exits, Business Add-Ins no longer assume a two-level infrastructure (SAP and customer solutions), but instead allow for a multi-level system landscape (SAP, partner, and customer solutions, as well as country versions, industry solutions, and the like). Definitions and implementations of Business Add-Ins can be created at each level within such a system infrastructure.

SAP guarantees the upward compatibility of all Business Add-In interfaces. Release upgrades do not affect enhancement calls from within the standard software nor do they affect the validity of call interfaces. You do not have to register Business Add-Ins in SSCR.

The Business Add-In enhancement technique differentiates between enhancements that can only be implemented once and enhancements that can be used actively by any number of customers at the same time. In addition, Business Add-Ins can be defined according to filter values. This allows you to control add-in implementation and make it dependent on specific criteria (on a specific Country value, for example).

All ABAP sources, screens, GUIs, and table interfaces created using this enhancement technique are defined in a manner that allows customers to include their own enhancements in the standard. A single Business Add-In contains all of the interfaces necessary to implement a specific task.

The actual program code is enhanced using ABAP Objects. In order to better understand the programming techniques behind the Business Add-In enhancement concept, SAP recommends reading the section on ABAP Objects.

Advantages of BADI over User Exits

i) BADI's can be used any number of times, where as USER-EXITS can be used only one time.

Ex:- if your assigning a USER-EXIT to a project in (CMOD), then you can not assign the same to other project.

ii) BADI's are oops based.

There are multiple ways of searching for BADI.

• Finding BADI Using CL_EXITHANDLER=>GET_INSTANCE

• Finding BADI Using SQL Trace (TCODE-ST05).

• Finding BADI Using Repository Information System (TCODE- SE84).

1. Go to the Transaction, for which we want to find the BADI, take the example of Transaction VD02. Click on System->Status. Double click on the program name. Once inside the program search for ‘CL_EXITHANDLER=>GET_INSTANCE’.

Make sure the radio button “In main program” is checked. A list of all the programs with call to the BADI’s will be listed.

Double click on the method to enter the source code.Definition of Instance would give you the Interface name.

All the interface class names of view V_EXT_IMP start with IF_EX_. This is the standard SAP prefix for BADI class interfaces. The BADI name is after the IF_EX_.

So the BADI name of IF_EX_CUSTOMER_ADD_DATA is CUSTOMER_ADD_DATA

3. Go to “Maintain Transaction” (TCODE- SE93).

Enter the Transaction VD02 for which you want to find BADI.

Click on the Display push buttons.

Get the Package Name. (Package VS in this case)

Go to TCode: SE84->Enhancements->Business Add-inns->Definition

Enter the Package Name and Execute.

Here you get a list of all the Enhancement BADI’s for the given package MB.

The simplese way for finding BADI is

1. chooes Tcode Program & package for that Tcode.

2. Go to Tcode se18

3. Press F4

4. search by package or by program.
