ABAP - What's next

164

In this article, we want to look ahead to the year and what it will bring to you as a developer. A small preview of our core topics.



If you've been following us for a while, we've already taken you on many ABAP development topics and shown you where the language is developing. We have taken on the new language elements from 7.40, although we have not yet dealt with all the new statements here, but only the familiar ones.

 

Review

This blog started with an overview of the various new language constructs and the change from the ABAP language to a modern language. Then we looked at the BOPF framework, the predecessor of RAP. With Eclipse we wanted to improve the handling of the tools and then slowly got into the modern area with ABAP OO and ABAP Unit, which is where every developer should actually be today. You can find an overview page of the most important topics and areas here, sorted and grouped.

 

Outlook

So what else can you expect here on the blog? This year we want to look at the topic of CDS and RAP in particular to bring you up to date with the latest developments and to give you a deeper insight. But we will continue to work on Modern ABAP and give you more tricks to improve your programming style.

But we also want to make sure that we have something for younger developers. The number of older ABAP developers is quite large and over the next few years these colleagues will be replaced by younger developers. Development will continue to migrate to Eclipse and the Business Application Studio (BAS) by default. We also want to offer these developers a good introduction to the ABAP world, without them having to resort to techniques from the 1990s.

 

Conclusion

It will certainly be exciting again this year and there should be enough fodder for you as a developer. We want to try to go more in-depth on the topics and use a few more complex examples to shed some light on the details.
