ABAP Objects and Upgrade



I would like to discuss pro and cons of using ABAP Objects for custom development related to upgrades. For example, it seems to be an advantage to encapsulate standard functionality. Through encapsulation the calling programs do not have to care about whether or not the underlying functionality has been changed. Reuse makes it possible to adapt affected areas centrally without having to make changes in various places. However, I saw a thread in this forum regarding older ABAP Objects programming which was obsolete after an upgrade. Even if it seems good that obsolete statements are detected and can be exchanged, it is additional upgrade work which would have been avoided if the code had not been written in ABAP Objects.

Please share you pros and cons regarding this subject.
