BREAK-POINT ( ABAP Keyword)

BREAK-POINT ( ABAP Keyword) introduction & Details

BREAK-POINT

Variants:

1.
BREAK-POINT.
2. BREAK-POINT f.

 

Variant
1
BREAK-POINT.

Effect
The BREAK-POINT statement interrupts the
processing and diverts the system to debugging mode. You can then display the
contents of all the fields at runtime and also control the subsequent program
flow.
If the system is unable to branch to debugging for some reason (due to
a background job or update), it generates a system log
message.

 

Note
After the BREAK-POINT , the system automatically
performs any restart in the database, if no COMMIT WORK was executed. Since
debugging sometimes switches off COMMIT WORK , you should not place a
BREAK-POINT statement in a SELECT loop.
In the editor, you can also set a
breakpoint dynamically without making any changes to the ABAP/4 program. These
dynamic breakpoints are valid only for the current user in the current
session.

Variant 2
BREAK-POINT f.

Effect
Behaves like
variation 1, except that the field contents of f remain in the event of any
system log messages.
