If you haven’t attended an SAP TechEd conference, typical types of sessions you’ll find include indepth product roadmap presentations, strategy sessions, customer case studies, and technical hands-on sessions.  These sessions range from introductory level to advanced level topics, and can be extremely informative.  Many of these are recorded and are available through Virtual Teched.

Some of the best sessions come from experienced field practicioners who are also experienced communicators, such as SAP Mentors.  One such cool session I was able to sit in at SAP Teched was a session taught by fellow SAP Mentor Matthias Steiner.   In this session, Matthias goes through the principals used within SAP Custom Develop to do large scale development projects leveraging Java and BPM as part of SAP NetWeaver Composition Environment.  Unfortunately Matthias’ session was not taped to be part of Virtual TechEd.

A couple of weeks later, I luckily stumbled across Matthias walking through the hallway here at the Palo Alto office of SAP.  So I asked Matthias if he’d be willing to recreate a couple salient parts of his TechEd session on video, and he willingly agreed.

So below are part I and part II of some key parts of his Advanced Composite Patterns for SAP NetWeaver Composition Environment.

In Part I, Matthias talks about componentization principles used by SAP’s Custom Development team for large projects.

In Part II, Matthias finishes componentization principles, discusses dependencies between architectural layers, cross functional features vs application specific features, and then discusses using aspect programming to leverage cross functional components effectively.

And if you are attending SAP TechEd Bangalore, you get one more chance to see this session live.  http://www.sapteched.com/india/edu_sessions/session.htm?id=170

    Greg, thanks for approaching me with this idea and making it available to a broader audience. I’d love to return the favor – so watch out 😉

    For all those interested in the topic and attending TechEd – I barely scracthed the surface in this 2 short videos. There’s much more in store in the CD301 session and my buddies Arvind and Shobhit and will talk about similar topics for ~ 2 hours and even show a live demo of a composite application connected to the ES workplace systems. So, you may want to watch out for them… (guys, enjoy #innowe10 and #sapteched and take good care of Reema!)
