Hi,

There are lots of interfaces available in ABAP apart from OO interface.

They are GUI_UPLOAD and GUI_DOWNLOAD which are used to interact with the Presentation servers

OPEN DATASET variants which are used to interact with application server components.

RFC Function Modules which can called frome external systems.

Normal Function Modules and update FMs are also an example of interfaces.

BAPIs are also an example of interface since it provides an interface for external system to access the business objects in the SAP System.

Hope this will give you an overview of interfaces apart from OO interfaces.

Hi Jak,

Brief overview is: Interface is something through the external systems interact with the SAP. Any 2 systems interact with each other through an interface. Incase of SAP, the interface would be an RFC or a BAPI.
