Hi,

Implementing Business Add-Ins (BADI)

The use of object orientated code within SAP has lead to new method of enhancing standard SAP code called

Business Add-Ins or BADI's for short. Although the implementation concept is based on classes, methods and

inheritance you do not really have to understand this fully to implement a BADI. Simply think of methods

as a function module with the same import and export parameters and follow the simple instructions below.

Steps:

1. Execute Business Add-In(BADI) transaction SE18

2. Enter BADI name i.e. HRPBSGB_HESA_NISR and press the display

button

3. Select menu option Implementation->Create

4. Give implementation a name such as Z_HRPBSGB_HESA_NISR

5. You can now make any changes you require to the BADI within this

implementation, for example choose the Interface tab

6. Double click on the method you want to change, you can now enter

any code you require.

7. Please note to find out what import and export parameters a

method has got return the original BADI definition

(i.e. HRPBSGB_HESA_NISR) and double click on the method name

for example within HRPBSGB_HESA_NISR contract is a method

8. When changes have been made activate the implementation

BADI(Business Add-In) is the object oriented method of user exits...

Each BAdI has a definition and more than one implementation. The definition means the methods(in class concept) that are used for performing various functions. The BAdI definition can be viewed in SE18 transaction(for standard ones) and user-defined BAdIs can be created in the same transaction as well.

When you create a BAdI definition, an class interface will be automatically created and you can define your methods in the interface. The implementation of the methods can be done in SE19 transaction

Business Add-Ins

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).

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.

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. In Release 4.6A, program and menu enhancements can be made with Business Add-Ins. 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
