With the already large, and ever-increasing, amount of options available for ABAP programming, there has long been a need for a comprehensive guide to help navigate through the maze of possibilities and pitfalls. While many guidelines on the use of ABAP already exist both inside and outside of SAP, most tend to focus on specific areas of the language. Based upon the daily experiences of the ABAP Language Group at SAP, this article is the final installment of a three-part article series that aims to provide a cohesive set of recommendations on the use of key ABAP programming features that can serve as a foundation for or complement to guidelines specific to your own organization.

To help developers — both those who are new to ABAP and those with proven experience — this second installment of a three-part article series presents basic guidelines and best practices for the effective use of ABAP so you can create well-structured, high-performing, robust applications.
