Using UML while designing Object oriented design in ABAP

Hi,

Is it a general practice in projects to use UML diagrams when you do OO design for a report in ABAP ? Or do people start writing th OO code directly ?

Reards,

Rajesh

    Hello Rajesh

    Even though there appears to be not tool yet available that allows to generate ABAP (OO) coding based on UML diagrams I highly recommend to use UML because it is very useful approach to document your application design.

    I am currently using Altova's UModel, mainly for generating sequence diagrams. However, the more familiar I get with UML the more I will use also the other diagram types.

    Regards

    Uwe

    Hi Rajesh,

    In my particular case, I use to start writing the code directly after I read and check the documentation. Right now i'm starting to looking around in order to get more experience in OO programming.

    I think that UML is the best option right now, also SAP recommends it. They worked with Rational Software in order to provide an external modeling tool to supports SAP's class.

    Check this link in order to get more information.
