I posted in the last time different Eclipse integration scenarios:
FreeBASIC meets ABAP - how to use FreeBASIC (representative for other languages) via RFC library with ABAP
Java meets ABAP - how to use Java code via JNI and a Java COM bridge inside ABAP
Here now a new integration scenario: COM library development and the using of this COM library with ABAP in the ABAP in Eclipse IDE.
To develop COM libraries I use PowerBASIC. PowerBASIC is a very powerful compiler to create 32-bit applications or libraries. also COM libraries. You can find more information about PowerBASIC here. To use PowerBASIC inside from ABAP in Eclipse I use the Wordfile Editor plugin too, which I presented here.
The first step which I made, was to integrate the compiler inside ABAP in Eclipse.
Now is it possible to code and to compile the COM library with ABAP in Eclipse.
