ABAP in Eclipse Feature Explorer

Hello Community Members,

I am Pravin residing in India. I am working as an ABAP developer from 8 years.

I was not active on new SCN as I was not comfortable to it. But from last few months

learned new SCN ,I mean I understood the navigation of it 🙂   Now you can catch

me here rather than facebook or twitter 😛

I read the ABAP in Eclipse Explorer challenge here on SCN homepage. Before this I was

not knowing Eclipse. On 10 Sept 2014 I got chance to attainde ABAP on HANA code jam event

where I come to know more about Eclipse and fall in love with it’s feathers.

I took the challange seriously  and explored more by reading many blogs ,wiki ,documentations,

videos..etc and also downloaded development environment.

The feature explorer is very very helpful to onboard new developers without any doubt.

It is very comfortable for development such as inline declaration. My favorite feature is cntrl + space functionality.

and search unused variables and delete them automatically.

UI5 has an added benefit to the developments as it works very well in eclipse.

Many thanks to the development team for developing such great product.

My friends  Modadugu Hemanth Kumar , Suresh Narayan Ram Choudhary must explore about Eclipse Feature Explorer.

  • Hi Pravin,

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    Regarding: search unused variables and delete them automatically.

    -> Seems to be interesting. can you please provide more information how to use that one or atleast provide the  links which will help me to do the same.

    Thanks in advance.


    • Hi Hemath,

      for searching unused variables you should take the ABAP Test Cockpit which will do an extended program check to find the unused variables:


      For deleting the unused variable you can use the menu item:


      Have fun with Eclipse.



  • Thank you Pravin..

    keep posting your ideas..:)

    SAP UI5 is a very nice and  I am working on it.

    I will share my experience soon...



      • Hi Pravin,

        sorry for that. I was not aware of the critism you got. 😯

        The 'Feature Explorer' badge will be handed over manually and we do this only once the week. So next week you will get the badge.

        But please go ahead with your feedback concerning the ADT tools.

        Feature for us is so valuable to priotize our backlog.

        Kind Regards,
