Now Available on the ABAP Update Site: ADT Version 2.68

Hi ADT community,

It’s time for the new Eclipse-based ADT client version 2.68!

Our teams have developed many new helpful tools and features for you. You can use them in connection with the latest back end version (SAP NetWeaver AS for ABAP 7.51 innovation package SP00). Note that a few features are only enabled if your system is connected with an SAP HANA database.

This blog is an overview. It summarizes the relevant blogs that provide more detailed information.

See here the blogs for the latest ADT features and tools:

      Hi Florian,
      we first want to finish the Dictionary editors and then move over to new challenges.
      Enhancement support could be one of the directions. Let's see.

      Regards,
      Thomas.
      CU in Barcelona to discuss the details

      Hi Alexander,

      sorry, I don't understand your question. Can you please provide more details or reformulate your question to reproduce your issue, please?

      Please see here our latest documentation about the Transport Organizer in ADT. There are also links to task descriptions.

      Hi all,

      I have the latest version of ADT installed on Eclipse oxygen, with all of the latest updates.

      Unfortunately we have to upgrade our solution manager, and the UI for solution manager requires SAPGUI 750 - this is not optional - as without it you see plugin errors for basic Solution manager features.

      We have noticed that the very latest version of ADT only supports up to SAPGUI 740 - according to the HANA on demand website.

      So now with Solution manager 710 out of support by SAP, all customers of SAP will be forced to upgrade to the 750 SAPGUI - and so it would be good if we could use Eclipse ADT too!

      If anyone has any solutions to this - perhaps ADT is compatible with SAPGUI 750 by some magic means - any help would be greatly appreciated. Have also raised a support ticket for this catch 22 situation.

      The error that we get in ADT whenever we try to call the SAPGUI backend components from Eclipse is:

      Please contact your system administrator. A new version of SAP GUI for Windows needs to be installed.

      Actual Version SAP GUI for Windows: 750 LSAPI protocol version 23
      Required Version SAP GUI for Windows: 720 patch level 9
