Welcome to ABAP Development basics.

In this post, you will learn to create a package for ABAP Development using both SAP GUI Editor and ABAP Development Tools (ADT). ADT can be installed either in Eclipse or it can be a HANA Studio, both have similar interface.

Add Short Description for the package. Application component and Super-package can be selected, but are optional.

Software component – select HOME.

The software component describes a set of objects that are always delivered together. A software component is released in successive versions with new functions. You can provide each component separately with Support Packages.
