Sonar ABAP – The use cases

Let’s continue the previous post about the questions to prepare for the implementation of a process of analysis of ABAP code, which we have seen that it was largely based on use cases.

So I invited again Walter, Quality Director of Drago Solutions, who accompanied us since the beginning of this series of articles, to answer a few questions about this subject. Continue reading

Sonar and ABAP

My blog Qualilogy is almost one year old (at the end of the month), and I found that almost all the posts that I have written are about quality of code and applications and are intended primarily for two types of audiences:

  • People familiar with the concepts of Quality, and the use of metrics, often beyond the field of code quality. They are often consultants or Quality managers, usually with the experience of various technologies and languages, able to interpret a dashboard and make audits. However, they are not all experienced in the use of code analysis tools, and sometimes feel that the J2EE world and Open Source tools are too technical for them.

I tried to show that it is actually very simple, even without technical knowledge, through several articles describing the installation and the use of tools as Sonar and Jenkins, and the benefits of many plugins created and maintained by the Sonar community.

  • People who are users or even experts of these tools as they use them on their projects every day or on the J2EE applications of their company but do not have the experience of other technologies. When in fact, you just some basic knowledge in order to analyze the other code than J2EE.

For example, the series we did about Cobol analysis, starting with this post Cobol code analysis – What you need to know.

As I had plans to make a series of the same type for the SAP technology, I asked his participation to someone who is not only a friend but also an expert in the field of quality and SAP world, and the use of analysis tools code. Continue reading
