In the third, completely rewritten edition of this compendium takes you to the ABAP programming under one NetWeaver. Based on ABAP Objects, it fully addressed all of the concepts of modern ABAP (up to release 7.0). New topics include: SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP, Regular Expressions, Shared Objects, class-based exception handling, assertions, Web Dynpro for ABAP, Object Services, dynamic programming interfaces (RFC, ICF, XML), and test tools. Where essential, the classic programming techniques are discussed.

As an addition you will receive a coupon for a free order of the SAP NetWeaver 2004s ABAP Trial Version ("mini-SAP 7.0", 30-day license).

Textbook for software developers - The very scope impressed: The new edition of the classic "ABAP Objects" is over a thousand pages, almost twice as thick as the second edition, published five years ago. The approach of the book has been totally changed. Would still be the second edition ABAP introduction and reference work in one, the latest edition is designed as a textbook for software developers and consultants who want to learn object-oriented programming with SAP's own language. Although ABAP dates from the early years of SAP, the language still has a great importance for SAP applications. 

To the 200 million lines of ABAP code every day to hundreds. The popularity of Java does not change. However, SAP is internally programmed almost entirely object oriented with her. Which, the authors of the book account by mentioning the classical programming models only marginally and have expanded the chapter about classes and objects? They also deal with a lot of new issues, including shared objects, the class-based exception handling, and the Web Dynpro for ABAP. Basis of the book the current ABAP release 7.0 is SAP NetWeaver 2004s. In the introduction, the development stages are described by ABAP. Then follows a brief presentation of the SAP development environment with all the functions for creating development objects, such as data elements, programs or user dialogs. Then, the authors give a brief glimpse of the 2004s architecture of the Application Server ABAP in SAP NetWeaver. 

The fourth chapter provides an introduction to object-oriented programming and describes its implementation using ABAP Objects. The following chapters present the elements of the language in detail, database access, the programming of user dialogs, external interfaces, and text and analysis tools are treated in separate chapters. The book lives on the wealth of knowledge and experience of the authors, especially from the expertise of Horst Keller, who has over ten years managing the documentation of ABAP and the roll-out of new language elements. He wrote most of the book and edited the entire manuscript carefully. Numerous screenshots and sample programs complement and illustrate the text. The book includes a voucher for a DVD with a trial version of SAP NetWeaver 2004s ABAP and all sample programs. (SAP Info 2007)
