Why the change is easy when you are doing it simple

Wednesday, June 18, 2008

Recently I was assigned a tasked to write a particular program using the OO language called ABAP.
ABAP is a language invented by SAP AG to customize it's applications. Like any other programmer (can't say most of them are like that though :) )I just started the coding part and in about a 4-5 days I completed it and gave it for testing.
Now starts the real deal. The testing person found many bugs ( Not to mention that I could not believe that a person like me actually made those errors. Because some of them were too simple. You know what i mean). A certain error required the flow of the program to be changed but the problem was that if i did the change it would require me to change some other places as well. Resulting in a major modification to the program.
Which might result in creating more bugs than previously occurred.

Anyways my point is, if you can do a thing with simple concepts and maybe convert the hard problems or matters in to simple things, a change or a major modification or a transition might not cost you soooo much than you might expect.
