Shared Objects - Areas
An area is a repository object for storing shared objects. It is the template for area instance versions in the shared memory. An identically named area class and any area root class are assigned to each area. Areas are created and managed in transaction SHMA. Various properties can be assigned to an area in transaction SHMA. From a technical point of view, the properties are taken into consideration when the area class is generated, or they are stored automatically in the attributes of the area class when an area handle is created.
