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 http://www.bowdarkconsulting.com/books/abapcookbook. 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
- File processing
- ABAP Object Services
- XML processing
- Web programming with the ICF
- Web Services
- Shared Memory Objects
- Parallel processing
- And much more
Where Can I Get One? 🙂
The book is available online in print and electronic form at http://www.sap-press.com/products/ABAP-Cookbook.html. I hope that you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
