Well, actually it is but in slightly different approach. We all know what ALPHA conversion is and how it looked like before ABAP 7.4 – unfamous CONVERSION_EXIT_ALPHA_INPUT and CONVERSION_EXIT_ALPHA_OUTPUT. There may be some newbies among us so let’s remind what it does – if you want to perform SQL query in ABAP very often you need to convert your data to internal format (or in the opposite direction when you take care for user experience and want to get rid of leading zeros). In the ancient times you would do something like this:
It is very common when system-to-system data replication should occur according to a particular schedule. Scheduled jobs define recurring tasks that run in the background. We will provide a scenario where we automatically run the Flowgraph which was created in the previous blog.
Are you using Micro Focus ALM (formerly HP ALM/Quality Center) to manage application delivery, lifecycle and testing in your company?
We have great news for you – Int4 IFTT can be easily integrated with ALM without installing additional components or libraries. Test execution is automated using VAPI-XP test script and doesn’t require Unified Functional Testing (UFT) to be integrated with ALM.
Enroll in our openSAP course “Virtualize and Automate Your SAP Testing Using Int4 IFTT” and learn more about our solution for testing SAP Process Orchestration (SAP PO), SAP Cloud Platform Integration (SAP CPI) and other SAP® Application Interfaces.
This free on-line training gives you an opportunity to get to know an automated testing software that enables end-to-end application interface testing across the full SAP landscape. At the beginning, our experts shed some light on the basic underlying concepts of testing the integration scenarios using different methodologies, such as agile and DevOps. Then, they will present you a set of typical integration scenarios that can be fully and simply automated with the use of Int4 IFTT. We’ve saved the best for last – during the third week we’ll give you an extensive demonstration of how to use the tool and its main functions. Are you interested? Catch a glimpse of the agenda below.
1.1 Introduction to Testing of Integration Scenarios with Int4
1.2 Testing in waterfall methodologies
1.3 Testing in agile methodologies

SAP PI/PO is equipped with a set of standard APIs which among many other things allow the maintenance of Integration Directory objects. This API can save you a big amount of time in certain circumstances and it is really good to know it’s usage.
Recently I encountered a basic router scenario. However the information I could use as a condition was not included in the message itself. I had to pass it to CPI, but didn’t want to enrich the message and mess it up. I figured out that custom header would be the great solution, however as it occurred, it wasn’t so easy (now it is of course).
In Int4 IFTT installations with large number of test cases or test cases with big payloads speed of data growth can become a challenge.
To reduce the data footprint of test cases database we are introducing payload compression.
This feature, available from Int4 IFTT SP12, transparently compresses new test cases payload at saving time and decompresses it on demand when payload is displayed or used during test case execution. Read more
In this short blog, I would like to show you how to use a CASE expression in the new Open SQL.
I have learned about it from my colleague, Michal Jakubowicz, who recently conducted a full 4-days workshop about ABAP Programming for SAP Hana.
The CASE expression in new Open SQL is available on ABAP 7.4 SP08. In this blog, we will focus on the scenario, in which we will select different columns in one select statement, based on the content in another column.
According to the best practices, flowgraphs have names with prefix FG_ and include runtime behavior and subject area:
