ABAP Channels Demos in AS ABAP Developer Edition
Using ABAP Push Channel – Web Socket implementation for ABAP – you can push in real-time any ABAP backend data changes to your Web UI and vice versa. With ABAP Messaging Channels your ABAP application can get notified about the processing status of other ABAP sessions and react without having to poll the database periodically for an updated status. And last but not least using both ABAP Push and ABAP Messaging Channels you can implement real-time collaboration.
For more information, see the following blogs: Introduction to ABAP Channels and ABAP Channels Examples , and also the ABAP Connectivity Community.
Access to ABAP on-premise-system from SAP Cloud platform
In the following tutorial you will learn how to consume data of your ABAP on-premise-system in an application running on the SAP Cloud Platform over RFC using SAP Java Connector (JCo) through the SAP Cloud Connector. The scenario used in this tutorial is based on the well-known SFLIGHT model: Using SAP JCo/ RFC through the SAP HANA Cloud Connector
ABAP Custom Code Adaptation for SAP S/4HANA
- The SAP S/4HANA System Conversion – Custom Code adaptation process blog describes what you need to do, to adapt your ABAP custom code during system conversion from the classic SAP ERP system running on anyDB to SAP S/4HANA.
- The Remote Code Analysis in ABAP Test Cockpit (ATC) blog series offers the detailed information about the recommended custom code analysis procedures and tools.
