SAP Fiori Elements

SAP Fiori elements newsletter #04

May 2020, Issue #4

Welcome to the fourth issue of the SAP Fiori development newsletter.

You may have noticed that we have changed the name from the SAP Fiori elements newsletter. In recent conversations with some customers and partners, we are finding that many people use a variety of development tools to build SAP Fiori applications.
For this reason, we are expanding the scope of this newsletter to include SAPUI5 and SAP Business Application Studio along with SAP Fiori elements. If your colleagues are working with one or more of these solutions, please forward this newsletter to anyone you think will benefit from the information.

As always, please let us know what topics would you like to see in this newsletter.  

Your editorial team,
Peter, Conrad, Keren, and Oliver

Fast Track to SAP Fiori elements

Stefanie Hager recently joined the SAP User Experience Product Management team. In this blog , she shares her experiences learning about SAP Fiori elements. She covers her initial observations and shares some useful resources she found.

SAPUI5 update for 2020 and beyond

The SAPUI5 framework is the reference UI technology for SAP’s Fiori user experience and the SAP Fiori design system. The open source version OpenUI5 is one of the most successful open source projects initiated by SAP. Read this blog by Margot Wollny about how we built on this success and what SAPUI5 plans for the year 2020.

UI5 Tooling: a modern development experience for UI5

Last month, we released the new UI5 Tooling 2.0, which allows developers to freely choose how they work on their OpenUI5 and SAPUI5 projects. To understand its capabilities check out this blog by Peter Muessig, which includes a recording of an SAP Community call as well as a Q&A blog .
To see the UI5 Tooling in action, read this blog describing the creation of an SAP Fiori elements application in SAP Web IDE and running it locally with the UI5 Tooling. This version of the UI5 Tooling can also handle SAPUI5 resources, see details in the blog Introducing UI5 Tooling for SAPUI5 projects. SAPUI5 libraries are published on the public registry and the UI5 Tooling takes care of the versioning .

Q & A

Does SAP Business Application Studio replace WebIDE?

SAP Business Application Studio provides a modern, maintenance-free, preconfigured, hosted environment, optimized for SAP developers. It is the successor product to SAP WebIDE. For customers with a SAP Cloud Platform Enterprise Agreement (CPEA), you can use either product, or both, as you transition.

What is the difference between UI5 Web Components and SAPUI5? 

UI5 Web Components are independent of the SAPUI5 framework. They are separate components which give you the value of our UI elements also on any HTML based UI technology such as React, Angular or Vue.js. Read more details in this blog.
