How to Make Your Life Difficult in Three Different Ways?

How to Make Your Life Difficult in Three Different Ways?

As an ABAP developer, writing ABAP programs is easy as 1 + 1. First, we learn the basic syntax, then - as a next step - we try to modify code written by other developers, and finally we write our first ABAP program independently. That’s it!

There is no difference, even if we talk about ABAP Dictionary: we learn the basic features of ABAP Dictionary – we learn how to create domains, data elements, or database tables – then we try to modify objects created by others, and finally we build our very first structure, database tables, or view. This is the learning curve that a beginner ABAP Developer usually follows.

Introduction

As you complete this course, you will acquire the necessary knowledge to plan and construct ABAP Dictionary objects in your SAP system, and you will be able to create and manage a central meta-data repository for your database that reduces the redundancy, the maintenance costs, and improves the efficiency. After the course, you can apply this knowledge whether you work on a simple in-house development, or a complex project.

3 Things You Should Know About ABAP Dictionary - Reusability

Overview

Right now, I'm pretty close to finish my first Pluralsight course, called Understanding ABAP Dictionary. As I mentioned the title of the blog post series, I want to share you 3 Things You Should Know About ABAP Dictionary, and we have already talked about two: Meta-Data Consistency and Data Consistency.

Today, it's the time to talk about the third one, named Reusability. If you think about the reusability a bit, then you recognize that it carries both the Meta-Data and the Data consistency itself by default. This is because, if we reuse our Domains, Data Elements, Structures, Table Types and so on, then probably it's much-much easier provide Meta-Data and Data consistency, since we reuse the different objects, so we need to maintain less objects, and we probably make fewer mistakes and typos also.

There is one more benefit of reusing our building blocks in the ABAP Dictionary: you can save both time and money!

3 Things You Should Know About ABAP Dictionary - Data Consistency

Overview

In the previous post, we talked about how we can provide Meta-Data Consistency through applying the Two-Level Domain Concept, or defining Global Structures and Table Types.

As you could see, ABAP Dictionary can really help you to build databases that are flexible for the future changes, consistent in order to provide high-quality data, and centralized to decrease the implementation and maintenance costs.

Today, we are going to focus on the consistency again, but within that the data consistency.

3 Things You Should Know About ABAP Dictionary - Meta-Data Consistency

Overview

In the last few months, I have been working on my new Pluralsight course, called Understanding ABAP Dictionary that is about introducing you the basic concepts of the ABAP Dictionary in a very simple way, using illustrative examples.

Today, I decided to share you a few thoughts from this course that can be helpful in your ABAP Developments. As an ABAP Developer, if we are responsible for the database layer, then the goal is to create flexible, consistent, and centralized databases that serves data for many application. Our databases have to be flexible for the future changes, consistent in order to provide high-quality data, and centralized to decrease the implementation and maintenance costs.

Today, we are going to focus on the consistency, and within that the meta-data consistency.
