New smartDevelop Toolset to be Showcased at SAP TechEd 2012 Madrid


smartShift, a Cambridge Technology Enterprises (NSE: CTE) company and the leading provider of automated optimization of complex IT systems and cloud transformation services, announced the integration of its smartDevelop toolset with ABAP® development tools for the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform.

ABAP development tools for SAP NetWeaver is SAP’s new ABAP development environment based on Eclipse. Eclipse offers a platform for tool integration defined by an open process by a large community of software tool providers. The Eclipse ecosystem increases developer productivity, offers extensible development tools, and functions as an integrated development environment. Its extensible plug-in system supports a variety of programming languages such as Java, PHP, C++ and, now, ABAP.

SAP plans to offer a software development kit (SDK) for ABAP development tools to extend the standard offering through integration with third-party development tools. smartShift worked with SAP to evaluate a preliminary version of the SDK by integrating the smartDevelop toolset as an extension to the new ABAP development environment.

smartShift’s smartDevelop for ABAP development tools communicates with the developer and speeds up the development process. Its automated code-quality feature includes code quick fixes and refactoring actions, and integrates with the ABAP editor and problems view, helping to keep developers informed on all potential improvements. Code changes can now be performed one issue a time, in a highly interactive manner. This technology contributes to rapid development and use of best coding practices, is compliant with corporate coding and naming conventions, and helps ensure performance and secure coding. Its expansive rule sets are customizable, meeting each custom need, and are continuously updated and extended.

Niko Faradouris, technical architect, smartShift, Thomas Schulze zur Wiesch, developer, SAP, and Thomas Fiedler, product expert, SAP will give an in-depth lecture session at SAP TechEd 2012 Madrid titled “Enhancing ABAP Development Tools in Eclipse” (Session ID: CD206).
