Description of elements (methods, parameters, types,...)


I would like to open this discussion as a feature request to SAP.

It´s about the possibility to create/determine descriptions for all kind of development elements.

For in example, in SE24 for every element there is the column "description". (Attributes, Methods, method parameters, Class Types,..).

For dictionary objects (for example the dictionary type of an attribute or a method parameter) the description is automatically determined from dictionary, and you can also overwrite it manually.

For other elements like methods, you can of course also create your own descriptions.

It would be very helpful to have the same possibilities in general also in Eclipse.

Because now, if I for example create a new method, I don´t do it in Eclipse because then the descriptions are missing. So, I have to jump to SE80, create the method there, descriptions are determined or manually set, and then jump back to Eclipse.

That´s just one example, and it would much more convenient to do everything consistently in Eclipse without jumping to other tools.

I hope this can be considered to be added as a new feature.

    Hi Michael,

    in Eclipse we provide a more powerful concept to document your objects. It is called ABAP Doc similar to Java Doc. See the blog from Michael Schneider where you find the details:

    • I don't want to change objects in production. I just want to attach a production system to the development project so that the rss feed from my objects comes also from production.

      The RSS Dump feed for development system is not very useful since most of the time I'm the one generating the dumps, but RSS for production would warn me about critical problems in production generated by users.
