This blog will explain the actions you need to perform to enable an ABAP backend for ABAP Eclipse tools (ADT = ABAP Development Tools).

Introduction of Eclipse ADT « Previous Index Next » The ABAP Development Tools in Eclipse integrate tightly with most of SAP’s strategic areas like Classical development, Web Development, Cloud and Mobility to provide a highly productive end to end development environment. « Previous Index Next » ADT supports a wide variety of ABAP Objects and this is expected too because Eclipse is part of SAP’s future development offering. SAP is working on future WebIDE which should allow to do ABAP programming on HANA Cloud Platform. Well, we wait with the excitement. Good things take time to Continue reading ADT Support for ABAP Objects.

Questions that will be answered are:

  • How to enable ABAP backend for ABAP Eclipse?
  • Where to find more background information on ADT (ABAP Development Tools)

Background information

The up-to-date information on the ABAP Development Tools and how to install ABAP Eclipse with the correct versions can be found on the SAP site. This site contains on the ABAP tab also the most up-to-date manual on the backend configuration.

The section below will describe the main steps.

Enabling ABAP backend for ABAP Eclipse

In transaction SICF enable node ADT:

Also activate the ABAP documentation tool nodes:

If not yet active, also activate SICF node wdy_aie_vd_preview.

Now start to test ABAP in Eclipse. Pending on the authorizations it might already work. If it does not work, check the standard SAP manual on the required RFC authorizations you need as ABAP developer to run ABAP in Eclipse.

Bug fix OSS notes

There might be bugs in Eclipse backend code. In SAP OSS search for component BC-DWB-AIE.


In Eclipse development IDE with ABAP perspective, when I create new ABAP project I did not see SAP system connections displayed in local SAP.I want to see SAP systems from SAP Logon in Eclipse so I can easily connect to SAP ERP systems for importing and deploying ABAP objects.I am unable to connect SAP systems from Eclipse unless I create all those SAP system connection properties one by one.

Especially with SAP HANA Studio, ABAP programmers will use Eclipse development platform instead of using the classical SE80 ABAP WorkBench more in time.

By default predefined SAP system connection in SAP Logon Pad are expected to be automatically used by Eclipse IDE.
But I assume that after installing 3 different Eclipse development software versions, the System Connection list is empty without reading saplogon.ini
Here is the case.

To create a new ABAP project using Eclipse, follow below menu options:
File > New > ABAP Project

The system connection list is empty.
Actually, I had created one manually.
But I expected to see many. The ones that I see on my SAP Logon GUI.

Here is a short list seen on my local SAP Logon Pad.

Here is the work-around I applied on my case

Go to Options on SAP Logon screen.
Under SAP Local Options node, you can see Local Configuration Files and Server Configuration Files where two saplogon.ini configuration files exist.

Local configuration files

Server configuration files

Just copy the SAPLOGON.INI from 'server configuration files' path and paste it on 'local configuration files' path over-writing the existing SAPLOGON.INI file.
Before overwriting existing file, you can keep a backup of the original one.

The system connection screen has the full list of SAP connections listed in the SAP Logon GUI which are inherited from SAPLOGON.INI which is updated with full list of connection parameters.
