Business Application Programming Interface

BAPI Technology (CA-BFA-API)

Standardized programming interface that enables external applications to access the business processes and data of the R/3 System.

Business Application Programming Interfaces (BAPIs) are defined in the Business Object Repository (BOR) as methods applied to SAP business objects, in order to perform specific business tasks.

BAPIs are implemented and stored in the R/3 System as RFC-enabled function modules in the Function Builder of the ABAP Workbench.
