      I hope my schedule allows me to go to the BRFplus tool.   It seems that used correctly it could really help with eliminating some of  custom ABAP programs.  That means we'll (ABAPers) be able to focus on some of the other million requirements that come our way.  (And I could be wrong about that.  It's just what I remembered.)

      Now - I'll admit, I went to one of these sessions last year.   It looked so hard I didn't try using it once I got back.  So I forgot everything I learned.   (Except that if I knew how to use it.  It would help.)  I was going to bring it back for our configuration type people.  I didn't see it as a tool for our business users.  But since I really didn't understand it, I didn't show it to them.

      So - I'm really looking forward to these sessions.  I hope to get to one.  And find a solid use for it once I get back home.

      Hi Michelle,

      One potential use might be to replace Z-table parameterisation of ABAP programs.  Instead, derive those parameters using business rules. Who says that business rules can't be used for technical ABAP business?

      There are lots of different rule strucutures, but even the simple name / value pair could be implemented with a lot of flexibility as a simple decision table.

      Yes - now you're talking!  The more we can get rid of "Z" tables the less work we have during an upgrade.  The less work we have on maintenance.  More time for the FUN stuff.   For me that is learning something new and using it.

      Thank you!
