BW objects are created as local objects and are saved in the development class $TMP. A development class is a group of objects that are logically related – that is, objects that must be developed, maintained, and transported together.
$TMP is a temporary local development class. Objects in $TMP cannot be transported into other systems. The names of development classes that we create must begin with "Y" or "Z".
In this section, we will create a transportable development class. In the next section, we will assign BW objects to the transportable development class.
Step 1. Run transaction SE80, and then click .
Step 2. Enter ZBW2 as the development class name, and then click to create the class.
Step 3. Select a transport layer, and then click to save it.
A transport layer links development classes with a transport route. The transport route specifies where to transport objects.
In our example, these routes have already been set up.
Step 4. We are prompted to enter a transport request for this development class so that it can be transported to other systems. We can either create a new transport request or use an existing one. Click to create a new one.
Enter a short description for the transport request, and then click to save the transport request.
Step 6. The new transport request is assigned to the development class. Click to finish.
We have created a new development class. Likewise, a transport request has been created for the development class.
