What is AWS SDK for SAP ABAP?

AWS SDK for SAP ABAP provides an interface to the services offered by AWS in the ABAP language. Using the SDK, you can implement ABAP BADIs, reports, transactions, OData services, and other ABAP artifacts on AWS services, such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Translate, and more. You can also develop for ABAP-based systems, starting from SAP NetWeaver 7.4.

Features of AWS SDK for SAP ABAP

AWS SDK for SAP ABAP has been designed to feel familiar and natural to SAP developers. For example, while all AWS services use the true and false strings to represent Boolean data in XML and JSON structures, SDK for SAP ABAP converts these to ABAP-native 'X' and ' ' single-character values. SDK for SAP ABAP uses native ABAP constructs as much as possible, including in data types and timestamp formats. As a result, the ABAP programmer does not need to be concerned about the underlying JSON and XML serialization or with the wire format of the API protocol.
