I’m an ABAP developer for over 6 years, I started off as a HR ABAPer, then worked in BW, now I write BADI calculations in the BPC space.
I’ve heard about Eclipse during my varsity days, but never used it, this is my first time using Eclipse and I’m quite impressed.
I think the feature explorer is very helpful to on board new developers, it highlights most used shortcuts to jump start your coding, and in the same process it get you familiar with Eclipse.
My favorite features are ctrl+space, ctrl+o also the feature that list all the parameters for a class or function, it can speed up programming a lot.
Other features I like is that you can open sap transactions inside Eclipse, the looks and feel are like SAP GUI itself.
and I see SAP HANA development and admin console are in Eclipse as well, its good to know that SAP is behind Eclipse.
Can’t wait to use Eclipse for my next development.
If you haven’t tried Eclipse yet then you are missing out. Go on and give it a try. 🙂
