Useful ABAP Packages for Demo programs

Hi everyone,

As a developer, whenever we have to work with a new object, to grab the new concept, we may:

– Read about it on

– Browse through different blog posts/documents on SCN

– Simply Google it

Another way I tend to do is to find the demo programs for that object in SAP. This is very useful as we have chance to see how the object works in action, and at the same time follow standard development practices from SAP.

So in this blog post, I will share the packages that I found very useful for object demoing purposes. Hope it is useful to you and if you know of any packages, feel free to add it in the comment so that we all have more knowledge. You may want to browse through the package from SE80 to find the demo of the concept you want to know about.
