Handling Versions

Hi Folks!

I need to know what are the best ways of handling versions in a development in ABAP. What is the best structure of transports when for example 2 or more persons needs to work over the same program or report, on exactly the same include?

Is there any recommendation on this issue?

Thanks.

Regards,

Gilberto Li

    hi

    if 2 persons are working on the same object then itz better to create two transports one for each one of them.this will help in keep track of what individual persons are doing..

    Hi,

    create separate transport requests for both of them and make a note of changes in the code by refering the transport request.

    Hi again.

    How do you create a new transport, when I try to modify an include that already exist in a transport of another user I'm getting the following message:

    "A new task will be created for the following request of user USERXXX"

    Instead of the option to create or assing to an existing transport when the include is not being modified by any user.

    Thanks Again.

    Regards,

    Hi again.

    Ok then my conclusions would be:

    For an include already modified create tasks for the requests and to comment the changes made by the user over these include, so we can control what's the changes made by whom.

    Is this right?

    Thanks again.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    If both the persons has to modify the object at the same time..Create a two tasks in one CR. As we cannot have two CRs pointing to the same object...

    Then history section of the object have separate comments for each of them..

    And when the changes are done..Have a wrapper with the user name for the changes..

    Thanks,

    Naren

    When the include is already modified by a existing user a task in the same CR will be created..
