Dear ABAP community,
I’d like to give you a short summary of the reworked ABAP project wizard of the latest ADT version 2.58 that is now available.
Creating or Defining the System Connection as ABAP Projects
Since you work with ADT, you know ABAP projects that represent the connection to your backend system.
Now, usability and functionality of the ABAP project creation wizard have been significantly improved as follows:
- The first creation wizard page displays a table that lists all system connections from the SAP Logon. So, you can skim through the table to find your candidate. In addition a search field is added above the table. From here you start typing the name of the relevant system. Then, only the relevant connections are displayed in the table. Both improvements make it easier for you to find the relevant system connection. Because, now you don’t need to know its concrete name anymore. As long as you have found your system, just double-click it, to open the next page.
- On the second page, you will find the “Connection Parameters” and the “Secure Network Settings” in a well structured way. To create a new ABAP project on base of an existing connection, you can modify the displayed data manually or just taking over all settings. In contrast to the previous ADT version, you can now define here more specific settings, for example, SNC, and so on.
Have fun with creating ABAP projects.
