ABAP (Advanced Business Application Programming) is a high level programming language created by the German software company SAP It is currently positioned as the language for programming SAP's Web Application Server, part of its NetWeaver platform for building business applications.
ABAP was one of many application-specific fourth-generation languages (4GLs) developed in the 1980s. It was originally the report language for SAP R/2, a platform that enabled large corporations to build mainframe business applications for materials management and financial & management accounting.
ABAP remained the language for creating programs for the client-server R/3 system, which SAP first released in 1992. In 1999, SAP released an object-oriented extension to ABAP called ABAP Objects, along with R/3 release 4.5.
SAP's latest development platform, NetWeaver supports both ABAP and Java
