#AbapInEclipse# – Next Gen of IDE

Hey There,

     The mission named AiE challenge gave me a chance to write how I discover ABAP in Eclipse, so here I am sharing my Experience.

About me

          I started my career as a software developer in Mainframe Technology. So for some year’s I was in front of Black- Green Screen 🙂 then I Got a chance to move in SAP and from past 2 + Years I am working on same.

First Step in AiE

          I was totally new in Eclipse when I got my first work to do. I slowly started exploring the things about eclipse, started learning the coding methodology, finding the blogs which tells me how to start a new project dude 🙂 and things go on and on.

         I saw a post from Thomas Fiedler regarding the ABAP in Eclipse Feature Explorer, I updated tools in my Eclipse installation. I completed the tour and will say that, it will be bit difficult at the beginning but once you will started hands on it you will surely love it. This tool is more efficient and faster.

Feature I liked:

  1. We can open multiple windows simultaneously.
  2. Quick Fix (Ctrl + 1).
  3. ABAP Element Info (F2).
  4. Method Information (Alt + F2)
  5. Format (Ctrl + Shift +F) & Format Active Elements (Ctrl +I).
  6. Inline declaration and table expressions and many more.

For the beginners best way to start is AiE Explorer.

For Shot keys refer  Shortcuts.

Lastly I would like to thank Thomas Fiedler and the team for such brilliant work.

Stay Awesome,

Romit Raina
