Pretty good book

I dont have anything bad to say regarding this book. familiarity with Object oriented and programming paradims is certainly useful. This is not a learn in 21 days book. Set aside coupla months and enjoy the ride. The cool thing abt this book is the ability to tryout the abap programs. I DID HAVE PROBLEMS!!! 1)installing the CDs. I am using Windows XP and had coupla glitches. 1) you should add the ip address and computer name to the /etc/hosts file on your computer. It can be found in the system32 folder. 2) You probably need to copy the contents of the Data CD(2) to hard disk (incase you dont have 2 CD drives. And specify the location of the data files during instalation.2) Problem creating Objects: I did have problems creating Objects..It was frustrating for a while. Then I figured out the solution after some online research. a) Try to apply the patch then comes with the CD. b) renaming my files to start with z_ solved the problem
Serious Warning! Please read.
By Jazon Samillano - September 8, 2005
I just got the book today, so I can't say if it's good or bad. What I can give you is a very serious warning. I have Windows Server 2003 with SQL Server installed in it. I ran the installation CD, and without even asking me, it started to put MS SQL Desktop Engine into my computer. After restarting the computer, my SQL Server is now corrupted!!! The warning reads "Your SQL Server installation is either corrupt or has been tampered with (unknown package id). Please uninstall then re-run setup to correct this problem."
Shame on the programmers who developed the installation program of this CD! Why didn't you put a check to see if the computer already has SQL Server installed? Now my SQL Server is screwed! Shame, shame, shame!
This book better be worth all the time I now have to spend restoring my SQL Server!
ABAP book good but CDs need help
By WV Book Guy "ABAP wannabe" - November 29, 2004
This book seems to be well written and informative. If you are like me you like to learn by example and coding yourself. This is the method the authors suggest and I agree.
They look as if they start with some basics. They also tell you up front that the book is not a book that is best suited for starting from the beginning and going to the end.
The problem I have with the purchase of this book is the CDs. To me the CDs and the minisap basis system is what pushed me to buy this particular book. The CDs and the minisap system will load. It will not happen without a bunch of problems. The help for loading is very poor. It might would help if there were some actual pages at the end of the help links. Every reference I had to a URL ended up taking me to a link selling more books or no where. A site is supposed to be dedicated to the minisap system but I could not get to it.
If you can get the CDs to load correctly(that is possible!) then you have... read more
