Q:

If you have 10000 records in your file, which method you use in BDC?

Answer

Call transaction is faster than session method. But usually we use session method in real time…because we can transfer large amount of data from internal table to database and if any errors in a session, then process will not complete until session get correct.

Q:

What are session method and call transaction method and explain about them?

Answer

Call Transaction Method: In Call Transaction method we call the transaction in BDC program itself. If we want this program is executed by some one else then we need to expose the code to him. Call Transaction Method Works in Foreground. No Display Mode is equal to Background Processing in call transaction method. Call Transaction Method can handle only one Application at a time. In Call Transaction Method no Log File by Default. We have to design Log File by using BDCMSGCOLL. Call Transaction Method Updates the Database Asynchronously. (Note: Asynchronous updation is Faster than Synchronous)
 
Batch Session Method: On the other hand in batch session method we create a session which can be executed at any time by any authorized person without exposing the code of the program. Session Method works in Background and as well as in Foreground. Session Method can handle Multiple Applications at a time. Session Method holds Log File by Default. Session Method Updates the Database Synchronously.

Q:

What is the difference between SAP memory and ABAP memory?

Answer

sap memory is a global memory whereas abap memory is local memory.

For example, we have four programs in abap memory and assigned some varibles to a particular program in abap memory then those varibles can't be used by anyother program in abap memory i.e., the variables are only for that program and also local to that memory,whereas sap memory can access all the abap memory or else it can perform any kind of modifications.
