  • My name is Phil and I live in the United Kingdom. I have a technical background having previously programmed in COBOL, Fortran, C++ and Python with various API’s. I also write SQL code in my current role. I have never used ABAP and this is a fact finding mission!
  • I have previously used Eclipse mainly to experiment with the BPMN2 Modeler software.
  • From the current reviews in the SCN ABAP is being well received.
  • I think the most useful feature is the ctrl+space and shift+enter to suggest code completion templates.
  • There are many other developers on SCN that know about ABAP in Eclipse:

         I particularly enjoyed reading the article by @Jeroen Custers and he also mentions @Thomas Fiedler

        @Bert Schlicher. Other includes @Martin Steinberg

    Hi Philip,

    thanks for the comment. Nice to hear when people get in touch with ABAP because of having eclipse as their IDE.

    Maybe you want to play around with the new SQL capabilities in ABAP 7.4 or you want to consume HANA artifacts in ABAP.

    By the way you already saw the new BW tools in Eclipse?

      Thanks Thomas. Open ODS View and the CompositeProvider certainly complete the portfolio to provide one common modeling environment. I find it hard to discover products that SAP does not support these days! 😆
