ABAP and JavaScript

In the kernel of an AS ABAP, a JavaScript (JS) Engine is currently integrated, in which you can execute JavaScript programs either in normal or in debugging mode (server-side scripting). The JavaScript (JS) Engine used supports JavaScript version 1.5. You can use proxies to bind script variables to data objects in ABAP programs (binding).

The existing CL_JAVA_SCRIPT class realizes an API, which can be used in ABAP programs, to the JavaScript (JS) Engine implemented in the ABAP kernel. The class encapsulates the JavaScript C Engine API and makes methods and attributes available to the ABAP programmer to perform JavaScript programs.

Other versions: 7.31 | 7.40 | 7.54


Support for the connection of JavaScript to ABAP will be discontinued in a future release, without replacement. Therefore, the CL_JAVA_SCRIPT class must no longer be used.
