Check out what I found…

For those of you who attended SAP TechEd Munich you were treated to a sneak peek at the latest internal developments around ABAP, the key thing is INTERNAL meaning that it’s actually not available so don’t bother asking, at least not too loudly 😉

This is from the guys who first brought you the TechEd ’06 Archive: ABAP Editor and they’ve been really busy lately. 

Now what you are about to see was harder to get than “blood from a stone“, now it’s now what you saw in the Demo Jam during Munich instead it’s a whole screen cam of the thing in aciton – ABAP (the whole se80) in Eclipse!

Demo Jam replay:

 

 

Now for the screen cam, just click here and sit back and enjoy I found playing some good music made it even better – it’s just a screen cam no audio – kind of gives you the feeling I really did sneak this out doesn’t it 😉

      I know that this has been done under the cover of night but if this development was given official backing and support from someone with a budget it would make ABAP developers all around the world a whole lot more productive.

      That ABAP Eclipse Editor looks pretty nice...But kinda expensive...299 euros? I rather wait for an SDN download -;)

      Now...Who got the idea first? Those guys or SAP???

      I discovered that this tool was already mentioned on SND in spring 2006: Hey, ABAP-ers, there is a new toy for weekend 🙂

      OK, we need this immediately.  How do we get this pushed through? Do we need to start an official petition for the higher ups to hear our pleas or what?

      -ewH

      I searched the whole web and I found no news about the new NWDS including the ABAP Editor. I always find information about the Third-Party Plugin www.ceon.nl/abapeclipse/, but now user comments.

      Is there anyone who has more information about when and where it is released (and if this tool is backwards compatible to support older Netweaver/ERP/CRM Systems)

      Thx!
