- I don't know, I can't help myself thinking that all this new features are only good for making the code less readable. But hey, you can write two lines less!
I'm not saying that all new features are bad, but from what I've seen, it seems to me that ABAP tries hard to be the new Perl.Oct 29, 2015
- Spot on:) I know it would add confusion, more for those so called ABAP developers who are not in development anymore, they would be freaked for sure.
I think ABAP also want to become "attractive" and cutting edge language, thus now catching up.Oct 29, 2015
- For me, the biggest jump towards what someone may call a modern language was the possibility to do method calls within method calls. No more tons of temporary variables.
Anyway, the problem with this is that not many customers have the latest ABAP available and I have to be careful what kind of code I can use.Oct 29, 2015
