ABAP ADT parallel locking issue for ABAP Classes


Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have one issue which currently stops me to working on ABAP ADT instead of SAP GUI. It becomes more and more critical for me. The issue is very simple: it’s how the ABAP ADT locks ABAP classes when you start something typing in ADT source code editor. When ADT locks the ABAP class then that ABAP class is completely locked, all its sections and parts (all methods and class definitions). It completely blocks me and my colleagues to work in one ABAP class simultaneously.

For example: using SAP GUI (SE80) I can open ABAP class and go to a particular method of this class and starts changing one, so the system only locks that class method, not the whole class and all its methods, while my colleague had been already working on another class method. If we consider this case with ABAP ADT: If my colleague is working on one of method of the class and I’m trying to change another method of the same class via ABAP ADT then ADT sends me the lock error and vice versa, if I’m working on one of the method of the class my colleague will not be able to change another method of the same class which’s more worse because I’m blocking his/her work at all.

Does anybody know if it’s possible to set-up ABAP ADT, so that it will lock a particular ABAP class section (method) instead of the whole class?


PS: my software stuff: ABAP ADT eclipse Version: 2.50.1 and my back-end system is AS ABAP 740 SP11.

Best regards,
