Usage of SAPlink:

  • Used to copy program from one system to another system without any Transport Request.
  • Used to take a back up of program, class and other development.

      Nicely explained. It would be nice to indicate its successor (abapGit) too.

      ". Execute the program and browse open the nugget file with Overwrite check box."

      When executing, a dump is showing indicating text type error on ZCX_SAPLINK. Do you know the cause?

      That exception is occuring because it is not able to read/write the source code of the program named ZSAPLINK from the Nugget into SAP.


      I would recommend using this blog:

      SAPlink is not maintained anymore, and was superseded with abapGit.
