Developers and quality managers must know precisely how closely their programs adhere to standards that govern their software's accessibility, security, and performance. SAP Web Application Server 6.10 introduces the Code Inspector, a new tool that checks ABAP programs, function groups, classes, and other repository objects to ensure that they meet defined standards, and enables you to identify potential problems before they reach the production system. This article introduces you to the Code Inspector's features, functions, and built-in checks, and helps you get started using this tool.
