    Nice blog. It shows well to create transport request\tasks while creating new objects.

    If you are about to edit an existing object in an editor, a pop-up will come automatically asking to either create new request or add to existing request.

    Creating a new standalone Task is bit easier.

    You can use Transport Organizer for that. This blog contains a video which details out it nicely:

    Creating a New Task in Transport Organizer view is as easy as right click on a existing Transport Organizer and choose operation “Add User”

    I wonder if it is possible to include an object into existing request with Abap in eclipse. Even with the newest version I could not find the way

    When I create a new object in eclipse I just hit activate and it asks for a package and a transport, you can choose an existing transport number or create a new one at that time. No muss, no fuss.
