Eclipse: any possibility to transfer code from one project to other

Dear experts,

i just started to use eclipse for abap and still can't find how I can export some code parts, like packages or single classes etc. so I cane reuse them later in other projects (like I can do it for Java).

Is this somehow possible?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Denis,

    as far as I know this is currently not supported by ABAP in Eclipse.

    There are surely valid use cases for export / import but I think in the area of ABAP development it is usually not a mainstream use case because the primary persistence for ABAP sources is on server / backend side and sources are mostly transferred between different backend systems via ABAP transports. Files that can be found on local eclipse directories are more like caches.

    But I guess there should be existing tools for code export outside of AiE and you can probably find them by searching for something like "export abap code" without restricting the search to eclipse.

    Best regards,

    I have definitely exported before. On the menu File-->Export-->General-->File system. I have not tried re-importing directly, but I have used the downloaded code in a text editor to copy and paste into other projects.

    You can use ABAPGit for this task. And also it is also official way of version control for ABAP in Cloud.
