What is the difference between user-exits and BADIs?

Expert Matt Billingham explains the difference between user-exits and BADIs.

What is the difference between user-exits and BADIs?

There are three generations of user-exits in SAP ABAP now.


First generation: there had been empty subroutines in place in the coding where you could add your code. However, this required to modify code of SAP standard programs. Example: search for forms starting USEREXIT.. in SAPMV45A


Second generation: CUSTOMER-FUNCTION. In certain places of SAP standard code there are calls CALL CUSTOMER-FUNCTION &lsquor001' . These routines can be defined with SMOD edited with transaction CMOD.


Third generation: using ABAP objects instances, they are called BADI. They are call with CALL METHOD (instance) .... they are created with transactions SE18/SE19. To find BADI search for the word EXIT_HANDLER in the coding.
