this my first posting, so please excuse that I am still searching for the right place to put my message ...
I hope this is the right group.
I have some questions concerning SAP Transportation management; I haven't seen a special group for that, so I am here now.
In SAP TM there are some business objects like shipment requests, shipment orders and so on. Is there any documentation available how to program with these objects?
I have found some ways to access them by going through the SAP source code, but that's sometimes very hard, and I couldn't find yet the place where the node ids for the nodes pf the object are created.
We usually use business objects in the context of SAP Workflow. A creation of one object (eg PO) triggers a workflow (approvals).
You program with these objects exactly as you would any "object" in the OO programming paradigm. There are object methods, events, attributes etc. Usually most object methods are implemented using BAPIs, but I have seen some that do direct "CALL TRANSACTIONS".
Transaction SWO1, which you probably have already found out, is where you can browse/create/test business objects. You can use transaction SWDD if you are building workflow templates. You will also need to get familiar with a list of canned macros that usually start with SWC_. In 46C, these macros are documented in include <CNTN01>.
