AMDP in SAP S4HANA: A to Z Procedural Guide

This document, created by Bantee Kumar, is a comprehensive guide on ABAP-Managed Database Procedures (AMDPs) in the context of S/4HANA. AMDPs allow developers to push down complex calculations, aggregations, and data manipulations from the ABAP layer to the database layer, leveraging the full potential of the SAP HANA database. This approach offers significant performance benefits, especially when dealing with large datasets, and enables the utilization of native SAP HANA capabilities such as advanced SQL Script functions, text search, spatial operations, and predictive algorithms.

The document covers the following key AMDP topics:

  1. Introduction to AMDPs and their benefits.
  2. Step-by-step guide on creating AMDPs:
    • Creating a global class
    • Adding the AMDP marker interface
    • Defining and implementing AMDP methods
    • Syntax for AMDP classes and methods
  3. Code snippets and examples for creating an AMDP class and implementing an AMDP method.
  4. Important considerations and restrictions for AMDPs, such as method parameter limitations.
  5. Consuming AMDPs in ABAP code:
    • Creating a program in SE38
    • Declaring and creating objects for the AMDP class
    • Calling AMDP methods using the appropriate pattern
    • Code snippets for consuming AMDPs in ABAP programs

Overall, this guide provides a comprehensive understanding of AMDPs, their advantages, and the step-by-step process for implementing and utilizing them in S/4HANA applications, enabling developers to optimize their ABAP code and leverage the full potential of the SAP HANA database.
