In Eclipse ADT you can share links to your code

Until recently, ABAP has never been one for big collaborations.


There are no external links in SAPGUI. If you want to tell someone to look at a method you’ve made, you give them the name of the class, the name of the method and eventually the line number, and they have to navigate there manually. It’s sad.

In Eclipse ADT

At any point in the code, press the right button and choose the option Share link for selection. A pop-up appears with two options: ADT link or web link. The ADT link is an Eclipse ADT-specific link and can be opened with CTRL-ALT-O. The web link is an HTTP url. Anyone who clicks on it immediately sees your code in their browser (as long as they have permissions, of course) and can then click on a button there to open it in Eclipse ADT. Very practical.


In our project we’re always sharing links with each other. It’s very handy.

So, if you’re still using SAPGUI and you could be using Eclipse ADT, you’re not the sharpest tool in the shed, are you?
