17 Apr: Want to Avoid HANA AMDP Mistakes? READ THIS

AMDPs provide powerful abstractions that enable ABAP developers to combine the benefits of the high-speed in-memory execution of SAP HANA with the well-established ABAP runtime and lifecycle model. Along with CDS Views, CDS Table Functions, and OPEN SQL, allow ABAP developers to renovate their existing assets and create new and innovative applications for SAP Business Suite on SAP HANA without losing the platform-independence of ABAP.

15 Dec: Using The SALV OO Class – Adding Functions to the ALV ToolBar

Lack of standard, baseline list processing functions means that developers devise their own methods for common list handling activities such as headings, sorting, filtering, rendering subtotals, and the like. By adding the standard Functions of the ALV Tool Bar you are using the SALV OO Classes to standardize your reports, and saving development time for delivering results!

15 Nov: Using The SALV OO Class for Quick and easy Table displays

Lack of standard, baseline list processing functions means that developers devise their own methods for common list handling activities such as headings, sorting, filtering, rendering subtotals, and the like. The result is that end users who work with more than one application may have to deal with different ways to access these simple list functions based on the developer who coded the solution. Using the SALV OO Class can help standardize your reports, screens, and shave development time for delivering results!

20 Aug: ABAP OO in your Custom Workflow – Part 3

When the workflow starts you have an instance of the BOR object which is defined by the key fields that were instantiated and passed during the normal event creation. Now you want to instantiate the class which you are going to utilize. Leveraging the class we developed in the previous blogs, create a method that has in input parameter as which is the key to the class, and an export parameter that is a type reference to your class. The method ‘CREATE_INSTANCE’ is defined as static and public.

20 Aug: ABAP OO in your Custom Workflow – Part 1

SAP Business Workflow was built on an approximation of object orientated programming called the Business Object Repository or BOR. It uses object oriented techniques which allowed developers the ability to create copies of standard BOR objects, modify them and through inheritance allow them to be used in place of the standard.

19 Jan: What are BTE and BDT Enhancements – Part 2

To begin, we must keep in mind every SAP implementation is different. That is because every business is different in the details related to their individual business processes and/or master data. Even with in the same company or entity, there can be slight or major differences in a business process or master data based on an enterprise slice. Some parts of the organization perform business one way, while another performs business another. While this is a challenge during implementations, SAP has delivered many different enhancement options. These may be leveraged by the design and development teams to meet the needs of the organization. Enhancement options are always preferable to core modifications when possible.
