On-Premise, Backend programming, ECC – where are you?
I still read blogs – or try to when I have time. So I was wondering where have all my “non-clould” blogs gone? Really? Where have the new ones gone? Is everyone now on the cloud with all their solutions? Maybe. But I highly doubt it.
Is everything already written? Not possible.
Are we all heads-down so deep into our own jobs? OK, now that one is possible. I know I am.
Just so you know up front. Here’s my set-up I work with.
- is on-premise on most core technology
- On the cloud for many different
- Best of Bread with lots of APIs and no SAP Integration Suite.
- Some SAP on-cloud solutions.
- Fiori based on everything except some Finance.
- ECC 7.5
However, I still have friends where there companies have not made the move to Hana at all. So where are the blogs?
I went to the question area today here’s the first page I came to (more or less):
- CDS Delta handling ODP tables
- PRint documents from transaction CV03N
- Input fields on F4 help ABAP
- Restrict movement types on MIGO
- MIGO Screen changes
- Tables for MB1A
- Link CRHD
- As always Excel download 😉
Where are the blogs? Some are out there. Riddle me this. I have a program to change/fix. It was written a decade ago. It is a structured program. The language doesn’t even to seem to be in ABAP. How do you figure it out?
Remember when we could download a mapping of the “important tables” to an area and what they did. Have you seen anything like that for CDS views? If you have please share because I haven’t.
Here are some fun things to think about:
- API / RFC / CDS
- Structured programs
I’ve been told all the blogs have already been written. I was working on an issue (I don’t remember it now) with a consultant. I said he should write a blog. He said he found all the information from blogs. I asked him if it was one blog or many. He admitted it was many different blogs. So I said, if someone has the same issue and it takes a week to find, they could find the answer in a day. However, he would have to write the blog. Could I have done it? Of course, but it was his story.
Is that you? Did you find the answer but it took a while? Perhaps there is a new blog to be written that ties all that together.
No it hasn’t all been written. No it isn’t always a “new” way of doing things. Don’t worry about putting out older code, do recognize that you should put a reference to where the newer way of coding can be found. AND be happy about some of the comments that might have you upgrading your code. What a great way to learn.
Now at the end of my rant. Here’s something I want to draw attention to. There are tutorials and learn opportunities all over out there. If you have the time, they are well worth it. If you don’t, a blog sure comes in handy.
Oh – just remembered… I did have a point to all this. Write a blog. New/old technology, I really don’t care. I’m just sad to see the gap we have with all the new vs. none of the old.
Please feel free to comment views different from mine are always welcome! As are the frustrated people who can’t find what they want out there.
