13 Jun: ABAP Dynamic Programming – Part 5

Program code generation is considered to be the highest level of dynamic programming because the source code is created at runtime and all ABAP features can be used independently of input parameters. But, please be aware that this is an expensive and difficult option. The code to generate programs dynamically is very complex and hard to maintain. If you adopt this approach, you still have choices to make. ABAP supports two types of runtime program generation — transient and persistent.

16 Mar: Debugging ABAP for Functional Teams – Part 2

Debugging is the way to find the root cause of certain SAP transactional behavior (e.g., finding a reason why a certain value in a field was updated or determining why users receive an error, warning, or abnormal termination message during the processing of a transaction). Debugging is necessary if the root cause cannot be determined from functional methods such as checking customizing or master data.

Since ABAP is the backbone of SAP, at one point or another, every member of a functional team must have had to deal with SAP development technicalities behind the business functionality. This need for technical details can occur during various phases, such as writing functional specifications or analyzing a production environment issues.

28 May: SAP Controls Technology Part 2

The Controls Technology Framework resides on the application server (the back-end), and the Automation Controller sits on the presentation server (the front-end). The integral component that optimizes the communication between the two is the Automation Queue.

15 Apr: SAP Controls Technology Part 1

Let’s review some of the technical aspects of controls technology:

-The SAP Control Framework

-The Automation Queue, and the issues surrounding “flushing” it

-Event handling

-Error handling

Including Controls Technology controls on the front-end establishes a client/server relationship between the application server and the controls on the presentation server.

19 Feb: The New Enhancement Framework – Part 5

No matter if you create an enhancement point or a BAdI as an enhancement option provider, or if you implement an existing enhancement option (be it implicit or explicit), what you create must fit into the structure of the Enhancement Framework in a way that enables you to collect and organize the enhancement options and their counterparts on the implementation side.

19 Aug: The New ABAP Debugger – Part 3

The tools of the New ABAP Debugger are optimized for the different debugging situations you may have to deal with during the course of solving a problem. Some of the tools you will recognize from the Classic ABAP Debugger; others are brand new. Before we look at a few of the tools and how to use them, lets first get comfortable with the tools menu and how the tools are organized.
