SAP Consulting Firm IT Partners Inc. are experts in the SAP Solutions marketplace. Since 1993 they have been offering services including, but not limited to, onsite consulting, staff augmentation, application development, data analytics, and SAP training.
Anthony Cecchini, President of Information Technology Partners INC, is following up his highly successful study on ABAP OO with an exhaustive five-part dive into the ABAP Enhancement and Switch Framework.
“This blog series will take a detailed look at the technological capabilities to add functionality to standard SAP software without actually changing the original repository objects, and to organize these enhancements as effectively as possible,” says Cecchini.
The informative blog series touches on a multitude of topics and updates surrounding the ABAP Enhancement Framework. With this new technology you can enhance global classes, function modules, Web Dynpro ABAP components, and all source code units using implicit enhancement options provided by the system. An application developer can also define additional explicit enhancement options for source code plug-ins and new kernel-based BAdIs, which are also integrated in this new framework.
The enhancements can be switched on and off using the Switch Framework. An enhancement takes effect when the package in which the above enhancement components are defined is assigned to a switch of the Switch Framework, and this switch is activated.
“One of the advantages of SAP software is the possibility to adapt the software to own requirements and the possibility of keeping the adaptations during upgrade,” says Cecchini. “The Enhancement Framework accomplishes this without modifications. Add this to the fact that enhancing objects instead of modifying them reduces the effort for adjustment during SP import, and you reduce overall TCO.”
