    daunting for a SAP Development Consultant who in the past usually spent most of his time using one single development workbench SE80 In addition to new tooling and code syntax Java a CE development consultant also needs to understand the landscape far better than an ABAPer It comes with the territory if you want to build apps that link systems and leverage services then you surely have to know your backend from your Java stack from your Dev Studio Simple as that If you re an experienced ABAPer then you must expect to be out of your comfort zone aka ABAP Development Workbench once in a while Books TechEd videos Tutorials SAP help and helpful colleagues are hopefully at the ready to make the transition easier for you Benefits you can reap from the learning process are more DC reusability agile and flexible development modern development tools and many many more at least that s what I hope for Imagine to cut down development time and deliver solutions to end users at a much faster pace than what you re used to in SAP Land Isn t that worth the effort At this point I would also like to divert your attention to my CompriseIT colleague Tom Scaysbrook s blog Journey into SAP another great read in the CE arena and beyond So what are my observations so far I think that my background in SAP s web app offerings and ALE IDOC are a distinct advantage when it comes to understanding services protocols MVC paradigm Object Orientation and parts of the new tooling So if that s your background great Here s the frustrating bit most CE tutorials on SDN are out of date Details in the tooling have changed in CE disadvantage being that screenshots and descriptions have you got your head scratching more than once It sometimes happens to me that I spend more time looking for a button or a tab than I actually need to complete the tutorial CE consultant Thorsten Franz has also emphasized this on SDN some time back in 2008 in more detail diggin deeper I was curious and had a look at the ABAP coding behind a web service for sales order management and was surprised I guess my expectation was to see a lot of wrapped BAPI calls but instead I found a lot of usage of the MV45A screen modules even FCODEs Very interesting to see how it was done though Learning how to use BAdIs to enance web services is high on my agenda another perspective another thing that I find fascinating is the Composite Application Framework It is integrated into the NW Developer Studio and enables you to write your own CAF services but also define your own structures and data tables Storage of data or persistence as it is called is all dealt with by the framework which is nice The topic of data storage in backend or CAF pros and cons will surely tempt me to a blog post in the future TO BE CONTINUED Posted in ABAP Blogosphere Tagged ABAP CE SOA 3 Comments TechEd Berlin 2008 roundup Posted on October 18 2008 by Michael Koch Now that I m back home from TechEd Berlin 2008 let me try to describe the experience Berlin itself is summarised very well in the following lines by the German Punk Band Ideal Zweiter Stock vierter Hinterhof neben mir wohnt ein Philosoph Fenster auf ich hör Türkenmelodien ich fühl mich gut ich steh auf Berlin Second Floor fourth backyard next door lives a philosopher Windows are open I hear turkish melodies I feel great I love Berlin Ideal Berlin Community Day In the weeks prior to the event I found it hard figure out if the additional time spent at SDN Community day would be worthwhile spent In the end I decided to go for it and participate mainly down to many recommendations from other SDNers and people I follow on Twitter So now that the TechEd lies behind me what s my verdict Well how right were they Community day for me was a perfect opportunity to meet some of the most talented and knowledgeable SAP developers out there I wish more developers out there in the trenches of SAP Land could see this it would certainly blow a lot of those cobwebs away that SAP development can be shrouded in sometimes Community Day is a meeting point for multipliers and disruptive developers overused words I know but in this case certainly the right description Whilst TechEd enables you to look beyond your own development landscape Community Day in addition gives it a completely new dimension I attended sessions on building RIA s using WebDynpro ABAP Flash Islands and Floorplan Manager SAP s unfortunately named Web UI configurator held by Rich Heilman Thomas Jung and Dan McWeeney In the evening we had even more chances to chat network and drink at a bash in the Berlin Radio Tower Funkturm an excellent venue for an event such as this and a great way to end SDN Community Day Keynote The keynote was disappointing a speech by a leading SAP software architect instead of co CEO Leo Apotheker might have fitted the bill and expectations better I was lucky enough to be offered a seat right in front row I think there were a few gaps that needed to be filled To my surprise there was no Ask the Execs session We were given no explanation as to why none of the submitted videos were shown To be honest I wasn t expecting my video to be shown anyway as it was fairly critical of TechEd admittance fees Hands On Sessions Given the sheer number of available 2 and 4 hour hands on sessions I think only 2 pre bookable hands on sessions are not enough Enabling attendees to book 4 sessions ahead of TechEd might be better Logistically this would obviously quite a feat for the organisers Certification

    future On the whole a very good move by SAP enabling more developers to gain access to the full dev suite at a much reduced price and offering full support incl SAP Net ID for it The only remaining fly in the ointment now is the restriction to Germany and the US Posted in ABAP Tagged Netweaver SAP SDN Subscription 2 Comments extension of certification exams SAP listens Posted on October 23 2008 by Michael Koch This morning I found an email in my inbox from SAP UK Education telling me about an extension of certification offer plus 10 discount on courses Obviously a decision has been made to offer the certification date range until the end of 2008 for TechEd Berlin 2008 attendees which exactly what I proposed in my TechEd Berlin roundup from last week No matter what the motive for this was I think it is great news for potential participants of certification exams in the UK Posted in ABAP Blogosphere Tagged Berlin certification SAP TechEd Leave a comment interesting blogs wikis Posted on January 16 2008 by Michael Koch Just spent a bit of time on SDN and found the following blogs and wikis interesting and helpful Thomas Weiss and his contributions on the Enhancement Framework Sergio Ferrari Plug Business and play music Thomas Jung s sessions on how to update your SAP Netweaver skills Posted in ABAP Blogosphere Leave a comment SearchSAP and opinions Posted on November 20 2007 by Michael Koch This is by no means an attempt to gain attention or something but if comments are being deleted then something s gone wrong I hope that this is just a technical issue although it doesn t seem like it The background I read Jon Reed s and Matt Danielson s comments about the state of ABAP and whether it s Dead or Alive All in all I thought their posts as usual are rather a remix of what SAPSearch has been going on and on about for a long time now thereby on this particular topic completely ignoring what else is been reported in the Blogsphere and on SDN Maybe SearchSAP is feeling the crunch on traffic ad revenue now that SDN membership is growing bigger and bigger So I posted a critical comment to what the SearchSAP Editorial Team had to say on Nov 15th only to find my comment being deleted yesterday Nov 19th Now I am 100 sure the comment did appear on the site I posted another comment on the 19th asking what happened to my original comment only to find out 24hrs later that my comment has dissapeared again They either don t to do criticism over there at SearchSAP or hopefully get back and tell me it s a technical hitch Posted in ABAP Blogosphere Leave a comment Ed Herrmann on SDN Subscription Program Posted on November 5 2007 by Michael Koch Ed Herrmann has just started a SDN blog even with images of the unwrapping ceremony
