      In the list of Testing and Troubleshooting Tools, transaction SAAB for definition and (selective) activation of Checkpoint groups should be mentioned.
      I think (don't know exactly) it was introduced with Netweaver7.0 (ECC6.0?).
      Many developers just don't know about existing check-group-controlled breakpoints in SAP standard as i.e. ALV grid.
      We used it to log the parameter values of failed RFC calls.
      This is extremely useful but widely unknown.
