Optionally, a property can be set within an iView that uses this component. This property (SystemName) references an SAP system defined in the system landscape. The SAP system is called through a remote function call to see if there are any TMS transports that contain specially formatted entries which contain the same details as the listing. If such transports exist, then the date/time details are compared for the objects and any differences will be displayed on the report. A new TMS transport can be created or an existing TMS transport can be updated with any new date/time stamps for the objects. This allows a form of change control to be maintained.
(The above image is slightly blurry due to scaling issues with the screen capoture tool that I used…)
For those who are curious, I implemented the formatting of the TMS transport using comment entries. I couldn’t think of any other entry type that was appropriate, but I am open to suggestions.
