New SAP Press Book: ABAP Cookbook


If you’re like me and enjoy getting hands-on writing code, then perhaps you’ll indulge me as I offer a shameless plug for my new SAP Press book entitled ABAP Cookbook. In this book, I have compiled a series of code examples that I think you might find useful in your day-to-day development activities.

One of my goals in writing this book was to provide more than just a random compilation of code examples. After all, there’s a wealth of these kinds of examples on SDN. When I purchase a book, I want to really dive in and learn something. Therefore, rather than just presenting the code examples, each chapter introduces a topic so that the code is presented in context. Along the way, I try to describe best practices that can be applied to your own development efforts.

As an added bonus, this book builds a code library that contains various utilities that I hope you’ll find useful. This code library is maintained at the book’s companion site at Here, I also welcome feedback and will post errata as needed.


As you can imagine, this book covers a wide range of ABAP-related programming topics including:

  • String processing with regular expressions
  • Dynamic and reflective programming
  • Unicode
  • File processing
  • ABAP Object Services
  • XML processing
  • Web programming with the ICF
  • Web Services
  • E-Mail
  • Security
  • Shared Memory Objects
  • Parallel processing
  • And much more

Where Can I Get One? 🙂

The book is available online in print and electronic form at I hope that you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
