AMDP in Release 7.50
Alongside the existing AMDP procedures, the
AMDP framework now also supports
AMDP functions in the form of
table functions in the
SAP HANA database. AMDP
now have the new addition BY DATABASE FUNCTION of the statement METHOD in implementations of
AMDP methods in
AMDP classes. These methods are known as
AMDP function implementations to distinguish them from the existing
AMDP procedure implementations.
Unlike AMDP procedure implementations, AMDP function implementations have a tabular return value, but cannot be called like regular
functional methods in ABAP.
AMDP Functions for AMDP Methods
AMDP Functions for CDS Table Functions
An AMDP function implementation in whose declaration the addition FOR TABLE FUNCTION is specified implements a CDS table function from ABAP CDS. The parameter interface of an AMDP function implementation of this type is specified by the definition of the CDS table function. The associated AMDP function is executed as a data source of an Open SQL read statement when accessing the CDS table function directly or indirectly.
