ABAP Channels Demos in AS ABAP 7.5 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. This blog introduces ABAP Channels and offers links to more blogs and video tutorials. Learn how to execute this demo step-by-step.
