Max number of watchpoints in ABAP ? more than 10 ?

sorry for very basic question. I have read in many articles like max number of breakpoints is 30 and watch points is 10.

Today however i did some test and i got message that only 30 breakpoints are possible.

However i created 32 watchpoints. Still i didnt get any error on max number of watch points.

Can anyone let me know the max number of watch points possible ?

    Rajesh, the max number 10 that you have been told is for the classic debugger. While using the new debugger as far as I know there is no restriction on the number of watch points.

    Thanks,

    Why ?

    In my more than 20 years of debugging I've never used more than 2 or 3 at a time.

    • Hi Rajesh,

      There is no need. You will never use more than a couple at any one time. Your time and memory capacity would be better served learning for example the use of the different table types (standard, sorted, hashed etc), or the reasons why you should type your procedures (and then stick to that) and learning how to code in a proper, maintainable, localised fashion. If you are concentrating on things likes this then it's a waste of your time.
