Computers-for-edu: An Advanced Business Application Programming (ABAP) Teaching Case
Boyle, Todd A.
Journal of Information Systems Education, v18 n3 p283-295 2007
The "Computers-for-edu" case is designed to provide students with hands-on exposure to creating Advanced Business Application Programming (ABAP) reports and dialogue programs, as well as navigating various mySAP Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) transactions needed by ABAP developers. The case requires students to apply a wide variety of ABAP concepts, including basic ABAP syntax, OPEN Structured Query Language (SQL), internal tables, external files, ABAP events, user-defined tables, screens, menus, title bars, function keys, drilldown reporting, and elementary dialogue programming. The case makes a very good final project in an introductory ABAP programming course. For an advanced ABAP course, this case is useful for reviewing introductory ABAP concepts prior to moving on to more advanced ABAP programming elements such as object-oriented programming and advanced dialogue programming (e.g., database updates, logical units of work). This case can be easily extended to include additional dialogue programming and object-oriented elements by, for example, having students write dialogue programs with tabstrip controls to manipulate data in the user-defined tables. (Contains 4 tables and 15 figures.)
