Kiran. V replied
BAPI (Business Application Programming Interface) is a set of interfaces to object-oriented programming methods that enable a programmer to integrate third-party software into the proprietary R/3 product from SAP. For specific business tasks such as uploading transactional data, BAPIs are implemented and stored in the R/3 system as remote function call (RFC) modules.
Badi- BUsiness Add In - When the customer needs more functionality than the SAP standard Program(Functionality)then we can add extra functionality to standard SAP functionality through Badi.
Badi can't distrub the orginial(standard)code. Adding extra functionality to the standard is nothing
but Add-in. Badi are not creted in the program itself. They are created and maintained seperately and called when we need the Badi.
Thanks & Regards,
