Small but Nice New ADT Features for the Core Development in the Client Version 2.68

Using the ABAP Source Search in SAP Systems Connected with a DB2 for LUW Database

If your SAP system is connected with a DB2 for LUW database, then you can now also use the ABAP source search. To make it available, see more information in the SAP Note 2241079

For more information, look here Searching ABAP Source Code

Opening Elements from the Element Info Popup in the Editor

You can now open a development object in the editor that is listed in the Element Info popup. You can do this directly using Navigate from the context menu from an element or press F3 when you are navigated to the relevant one.

To open the Element Info popup, press F2 on the relevant element/object in the editor select.

If you want to open directly, right-click the relevant element/object and choose Navigate from the context menu.

If you need, for example, to investigate the relevant element/object, just click the proper element/object. When you have found it, choose the Open Editor icon from the navigation bar below.

The corresponing object is then opened in the editor. If you have selected an element, the cursor is positioned at the first usage.

For more information, look here Displaying Details in the Element Information Popup and the ABAP Element Info View

      Hi Wolfgang,
      can you confirm that these new features will only work on 7.51?
      (It is not immediately technically evident to me why they would not work on 7.40 as well.)

      Hi Edo,

      I am sorry for my late respone.

      Yes, most of the new ADT features dependent on the latest SAP NetWeaver backend version.

      A few of the features are client-only. This means that they have no dependencies to the backend. You could also use them with your NW7.40 system.

      You can find them out by checking the following client news:
      (The client-only features are highlighted with a star *)


      Did my text help you?
      Kind regards,

      Hi Wolfgang,
      thanks for the info.
      Unfortunately, it seems that none of the features of this client version work with 7.40.
      So I have something to look forward to 😉
      Best regards,
