ABAP Freak Show – Aug 5th – ABAP OO Tutorial Part 5

In this final entry in the 5 part ABAP OO series, we examine examples of how SAP puts the techniques that we learned in the previous 4 sessions to work within the standard code that they deliver to customers. We start by looking at the CL_BCS classes for sending email. CL_BCS* serves as a perfect example of the use of Persistent Objects and Polymorphism. We also look at the functionality behind the new ABAP Code Completion feature in the ABAP Editor. This block of code uses Persistent Objects, Inheritance/Polymorphism, Exception Classes, and MVC structured Classic Dynpro.

You can also download all the source code from all 5 tutorials. Just be sure to look at the ReadMe.pdf file for important tips on installing the source code.
