Since 2005, we’ve been working on the development of a consolidate set of business classes written in OO ABAP. Since we (our team) are consultants working in different projects, we had the opportunity to go through the process a few times and that allowed us to correct design errors that we only discovered too late. These pitfalls could be easily avoided if we had had some “guidance”.


I am going to present at Inside Track Palo Alto this upcoming Friday a session that will address the following:


  • What are Business Classes?
  • Why do we need them?
  • Why do we need programming standards?
  • Present our best practices in development standards
  • INSIDE TRACK ONLY: Discussion on Community content and collaboration


  I am confident that this session packs a great amount of valuable information and that it will directly benefit your day to day work.


Here are the details for the sessions:

    I am sure your session will be a huge benefit to everyone. To realize the benefits of the new functionality of NW ABAP, the developers need to start using OOABAP – I look forward to the session.

      Hi Srini,

      Thanks for your comments.
      Are you going to be there? If so, lest me know. I would like to meet you before the session.
      Lets start a nice conversation around the subject.
      I am sure the Inside Track will be a very nice event.

    Best practices in development standards for OOABAP is very much needed. Will the standards be available to everyone in some kind of document?
