Shared Objects - Area Instance Versions

Shared objects are stored and managed in area instance versions. In an ABAP program, area instance versions and thus shared objects are accessed exclusively using area handles. Here, area locks are set and area instance versions can acquire different states.

The transaction SHMM provides an overview of the area instances in the shared objects memory of the current AS Instance, the corresponding locks, and the states of the area instance versions. The class CL_SHM_UTILITIES is used to query the attributes of area instances in programs.

Other versions: 7.31 | 7.40 | 7.54
