Very disappointing for most of you was that these new features were only available for NW 7.40 SP05. 😡
Today SAP has released a new Support Package for SAP NetWeaver 7.31. You can now download the SP11 for NW 7.31 via the SAP Service marketplace. I’m pleased to announce that we managed to downport most of the features from ADT 2.19 also to that support package level. 🙂
Now you have the same editor features in NW 7.31 as in NW 7.4 like the powerful quick fixes for creating artifacts like function modules, includes, attributes or parameters of methods. Also the new debugger features like watchpoints and the improved handling of internal tables are the same in both stacks (Important Remark: You need the 7.21 Kernel in your system to use the eclipse debugger in the NW 7.31 ABAP stack).
