The Web Dynpro code contains too many direct calls to routines using “me–>”

Why you should care

Special rules apply for the implementation of Web Dynpro routines, such as “wd_Do_Init” methods. Some ABAP language statements cannot be used. Other routines cannot be called directly – instead they must be called with the “wd_This” instance. The reason for this is that a direct call makes any extensions made from restructured layers impossible.

CAST Recommendations

Replace the “me->” calls with a delegation using “wd_This->”.

How we detect

This Code Insight counts one occurrence each time a direct call to routine using the “me–>” instance is found in Web Dynpro source code.
