Checkpoints define points in a program at which the state of the program can be tested during program execution. Checkpoints are either conditional and unconditional. Conditional checkpoints are defined by assertions, unconditional checkpoints by break points or log points. You can activate and deactivate checkpoints as well as break points from outside the program by assigning them to a checkpoint group using the transaction SAAB.
More information about activatable checkpoints can be found in the corresponding section in the
SAP NetWeaver documentation in SAP Help Portal.
