ABAP debugger: settings:- "ESF debugging" ?

In the classic debugger on a WAS 7.00 technical release, under the settings tab there is a checkbox option for "ESF debugging". Anyone know what this is for and how it works? I can't find anything similar in the new debugger but was curious to know what this was all about in the classic debugger.

I don't get any results in SDN or the SAP library for searches on "ESF debugging"...

    Hi Mark,

    I was curious about your post so I checked for SAP Notes and did a bit of Google searching. I guess "ESF" in this case stands for "Enterprise Services Framework." There are a few hits in SDN when you search for "Enterprise Services Framework debug", but I didn't see any specific info regarding the "ESF debugging" option.

    I did find [Note 838772 - ESF not available in 7.0|] which implies that the ESF debug option probably does nothing (or is at least not supported) in release 7.0. Check out SAP Notes in component BC-ESI-ESF Enterprise Service Framework Layer.

    I also found this interesting [link|] via Google. This page talks about a patent for backend debugging (mainly for SAP). Searching for "SAP" within this linked page makes me think that the "ESF debugging" option could very well be related to backend debugging for the ESF (which is not available in 7.0).
