New French-language release: Le débogueur SAP pour développeurs et fonctionnels

Espresso Tutorials is very pleased to announce our latest French-language book release Le débogueur SAP pour développeurs et fonctionnels by Nicolas Pontier. Keep reading to learn more. 

Comprendre un projet SAP implique bien évidemment de comprendre les flux métiers qui composent le scope de ce projet, mais aussi toute la partie tech- nique déjà en place ou à réaliser afin de saisir au mieux les besoins du client. Très vite, nous pouvons être confrontés à une problématique : le code ABAP qui, dans certains cas, peut être très complexe à appréhender. L’avantage d’un système SAP est qu’il est pourvu d’un débogueur très complet et performant. Ainsi, de nombreux fonctionnels et développeurs l’utilisent régulièrement afin de résoudre des problèmes plus ou moins difficiles. Cependant il n’existe pas de réelles aides de cet outil sur SAP et il est très rare d’avoir un guide expliquant ses différentes fonctionnalités. Grâce à ce livre, il est désormais possible de tenir tous les tenants et aboutissants du débogueur SAP. Ouvert à tous, il est un bon moyen aux équipes fonctionnelles d’utiliser les fonctions de base du débogueur SAP, et aux équipes de développement, d’approfondir leurs connaissances et d’accélérer leur analyse en ciblant avec précision, l’origine d’un problème ou l’endroit d’une mise à jour à mettre en place. La majorité des (nombreux) outils mis à disposition dans le débogueur SAP est traitée avec des exemples dont le code est à disposition afin que le lecteur puisse suivre et reproduire les exemples sur son système SAP.

  • Aperçu de l’interface du débogueur SAP
  • Explications d’outils spéciaux complexes mais très utiles
  • Revue des principaux outils
  • Exemples pour suivre et reproduire les cas étudiés
