The TM Podcast has a twitter account, @SAPTMPodcast. The account will be used to distribute little pieces of information around TM, the podcast itself and related stuff.
And this is a technical test with our new podcasting infrastructure :->
This time we talk about a generic tool: The Process Controller.
After a short introduction what the process controller actually is, with some examples etc.
we talk about the necessary customizing.
Some technical details about what technically happens are also there.
Finally we talk about the ways of using the process controller to enhance the standard functionality.
This ( also video…) episode is a bit special, it´s the introduction of the TM Quicksearch. The TM Quicksearch is an easy way to find all kind of transactional documents like Forwarding Orders, Freight Bookings, Freight Orders, SFIRS and the like directly from the (installed) NWBC search bar. For all releases out in the wild it needs to be made technically available with a note first: 2260864.
After installing the note the required classes are available. Additionally you need to activate an SICF service for the class and configure an search provider for the NWBC, this is described here.
In the podcasts our students which implemented the search are also explaining the architecture of the search class so that you can use it to either build your own search classes or enhance our classes by inheriting from them.
We talk about association, alternative keys and node-classes.
And we use the BOPF-knowledge to show some coding examples on how to program in BOPF-context, including some dos and don’ts.
