AIE Feature Explorer

I started in 2005 ABAP Programming with a older Version of the SE80 Editor.

In this time I also coded in C# in Visual Studio and Java in Eclipse.

I like ABAP with the concept of available source code of every function/class, but SE80 ist not my favourite IDE.

At TehcEd 2012 I heared the first time of ADT. Since then I was waiting for my first project with ADT enabled backend.

Last year I started with ABAP in Eclipse and finished directly after the release 2.24 of AIE the feature explorer.

I would like to see more “episodes” of feature explorer and even a option to enhance the feature explorer with own tutorials (to train new colleagues).

      Hi Harald,

      do you really mean you want to create your own feature tours as an Add-on to the SAP tours?

      I would like to use the feature explorer as a tutorial for our internal Frameworks. E.g we have a own MVC Framework for Dynpros, where we need to copy one Functiongroup (including a Dynpro), inherit from a view class and so on. I think this could be a good tool even for custom tutorials.

      best regards,

      Hi Harald,

      do you really do that? Calling the dynpro in the function group and call the function in a method every single time? Isn't that hard to use and understand for new staff at all?

      Maybe you can explain your construct to me. I'm really interested in, if you have changed the UI a time and how long it took to rebuild the stuff.

      Hi Florian,

      I don't call the function and screen in each PAI/PBO Loop. In the PAI Module i directly call a Method on the View which interprets the fcode. Then the View delegates to a controller. The Framework's basics are similar to OO ABAP Dynpro Programming , but with more separation between Viewlogic in the Viewclass and Controllerlogic in the Controller class.
