New Article for Webdynpro ABAP Newbies – Context Read & Write

Hello All,

 I have written another article for the ABAP Webdynpro Newbies out there. This is mainly aimed at helping people understand how to read and write from context.

Before anyone asks, the code for all of this can be generated automatically. But i prefer to do it manually. I dont know why but, i feel that i have more control of my code 😛

Anyway, please go through this tutorial and i hope it was worth the effort.

Please do leave your comments 🙂

Best Regards,

      A blog to advertize about the article..that's something new...

      Also, The contents of the article are very basic in nature, there is loads of information available for the same ( like videos, articles, blogs etc ). Please while writing an article or posting something do search in SDN whether same type of articles are present or not.

      Don't want to discourage the author but try to write\ post new content..

      Hello Manas,

      Thanks for your comments. I do agree with you. The contents are very basic in nature.

      But, I felt the need for this article as i had a tough time in searching SDN for material containing context mapping for internal tables. It also took a long time for me to finally find the difference in mapping internal tables and variables to nodes.

      I thought that it would be a good idea to have an article which clearly distinguish between both. As far as the wizard is concerned, i wasn't able to find an option to set or get internal table data and context data.

      Please excuse me if this already exists in SDN. I just thought that it would be easier for users to find context mapping (whether by table or variable) in a single article.

      Warm Regards,

      Read the context is just one of the various features the WebDynpro Code Wizard...
      I cannot understand the fun of writing that code from scratch.
      Surely I'm wrong, but it seems that you did it for the points only...

      Hello Andrea,

      Thanks for your thoughts.

      Firstly, there is absolutely no fun in writing code from scratch. Maybe i should have rephrased my blog text 🙂

      I basically wanted to have an article in SDN for context mapping which had both the techniques - mapping for variables as well as for internal tables.

      I was very confused initially, and after a lot of searching in SDN, did i find something in the forums. So, i thought that I would make life easier for everyone by having an article for this.

      I tried to use wizard to generate code for table level mapping (i.e mapping from internal table to context node) but, i was not successful. 🙁

      Getting and setting variable data from the contexts are fairly striaghtforward using the wizard, but when it comes to tables, newbies are likely to get stuck.

      I hope that this 'Clears me of all Charges' 😉

      Cheers Mazin.

      I don't understand this blog. Why you don't use wizard?
      Take a look to this screen shot:
