ABAP debugger has a great hidden feature which every ABAP’er needs very often while debugging programs.As you know perform,method,call function creates new branches in your code and after calling this branches you lost local data of this branches. However you may need local values of each branch in your source code.
As you know SM37 shows status, logs and many information about background jobs. What about run time information of already executed background job or an active job? For example which select-options or parameters are selected in background selection screen with which values. Of course the easiest way is to debug the related program somehow. Here we can separate the case to two conditions. First one is active jobs and the second one is finished jobs.
As describes in earlier post , any customer-exit including BADI which is formerly implemented can be found by debugging standard SAP code. For unimplemented BADI’s there are other alternatives to find BADI implementation points. From this alternatives i mostly prefer debugging. Let me put in order the items required to determine places to implement BADI’s.
While dealing with standard code , you may want to know every custom code formerly implemented for a particular transaction. We know that custom code embedded in a standard code means a custom function or report called dynamically , a BADI or enhancement implementation or finally an user-exit implementation. To summarize a program or include or function module starting with Z letter is called.
There are many ways of triggering ABAP runtime analysis. I will try to mention each of them according to their usage way and simplicity. First and the most attractive way is using SAP’s new debugger tool. While executing a transaction…
