Your session contribution

Your session contribution is at the core of SAP Inside Track. So if you think about hosting a session, please let us know by submitting your session idea to the wiki page or emailing to Graham Robinson.

It doesn't have to be a well prepared classroom-style PowerPoint presentation. In fact we would prefer it if it is a more open, improvised and collaborative discussion session to draw out the ideas and experiences of others. We usually collect all submissions and then run the ones that the audience show a preference for on the day.


BOF Topic




Common Web Dynpro ABAP issues and how to work around them

If you work in the Web Dynpro ABAP space, then chances are you've read the WDA forum. I do - in the last year I've done it lots. And there are plenty of little things that come up over and over again. Some are inane - the ubiquitous "why can't I read this binary Excel file in WDA", but others are more sensible - passing parameters between application, getting around the lack of Exit plugs in the portal, launching a GUI transaction from WDA, etc. A discussion of a list of these issues, (I'll bring a list, but please feel free to add to it on the day) and what are "best practice" for resolving them.

POWL - use and abuse

Personal Object Work List, Power List, Power Work List, what ever you want to call it, it's getting used more. How should we use it and how should we not use it - what design patterns fit - and which ones don't. Possibly some agreement on where it should be used. (N.B. I'm not claiming to be an expert on this - that's for Thomas ;-) but I'm happy to lead any discussion.

Chris Paine


Code Exchange - making the most of it

A discussion on some of the "best" submissions in code exchange - working on a community project  and how to keep abreast of what is happening in this space, potentially looking at ABAP2XLSX and so on.



Mobile SAP

Sybase, REST, Gateway, ATOM, JSON, OData - For some it's a brave new world - for others, SAP is finally starting to keep up. What do these mean, and why should we use some over others? Why not just use Matt Harding and Alisdair Templeton's "Really Simple" framework? A discussion!
