Code inspector - Is it useful?

Postby Incho » Mon Oct 20, 2003 4:06 am

I'm on 46C and I'm thinking to import Code Inspector to our system as it described in OSS note 543359.
I know in higher release it's already available.

Is it a useful tool?
Does it really help to optimize the customer porograms?
Does it make sense to import it?
Has anybody imported this in 46C? Any problems?

Thanks in advance,
Incho

I haven't used this tool, but I would be interested to hear what you / other people think about it. I have also considered it (as performance and clarity of code are part of my remit in my new role) and am wondering if it qualifies as a 'hammer to crack a nut' or 'tool fit for task'???
Kind Regards

I had a quick play around with it and remember thinking that I would give my right arm for something like this. but, of course i could always update my 4.6C system so it should not come to that.

So, yes, it's very useful. The more you use it the more you realise how useful it really is.

Did you enhance the existing checks or did you plan any enhancements?

Thanks for your answer!
I wouldn't give my right arm for any tool...may be for a tool, which generates the program based on the customer "specifications" :wink:

Anyone who is interested in:
The request was imported to our DEV system.
I've just made a few test, and this tool looks quite useful, especially for performance analyzing. Unfortunately it's not integrated to SE80...but calling via transaction code SCII, the inspection can be done quickly for a program...

Incho - can you give details on how to obtain Code Inspector

Postby Dr Sidewalk » Thu Feb 26, 2004 8:32 am

Incho,

Can you give details (OSS note and source area) on how to obtain the Code inspector for Version 4.6?

Something else...

Postby Dr Sidewalk » Thu Feb 26, 2004 9:40 am

The code inspector that I saw and used came as standard with version 4.7 and was intergrated into SE80/38. It has many more stringent checks than shown in transaction SLIN.

SLIN

Postby Dr Sidewalk » Thu Feb 26, 2004 9:42 am

Tranx SLIN looks like the standard check program whose results are often seen with SE10/01 transport organiser.

Dr Sidewalk.

OSS note 543359 is about Code Inspector for 46C (you have to download and import a package).
You can find info about Code Inspector in the SDN site (http://www.sdn.sap.com) if you use the search engine with 'Code Inspector' (eg: Evaluating the Quality of Your ABAP Programs and Other Repository Objects with the Code Inspector, ABAP Workbench News, ABAP Troubleshooting etc.)
Also check service.sap.com/performance Media Library (Code Inspector User Manual, Code Inspector: How to Build a New Check, Code Inspector: Short User Manual).

I really like Code Inspector. I use it via SCII...since I don't want to store my inspection...I just want to perform an inspection quickly and check/correct the result.
A big advanteges in higher releases there are new built-in checks coming with support packages...so it's an open framework for program checking.

Many thanks for the info.

I knew it would grow on you. You sounded sceptical when this thread was originally created.

Thanks again....
