File upload using ODataModel

Hi all,

My HANA table "FILE" has metadata fields (e.g. filename) and a binary field which I'd like to use for file storage i.e. one file for each row.

I'd like to upload files from a UI5 web app: I can expose my table as OData but I'm not sure about the next step.

I would like to create the new record containing the binary data using the create() method from the ODataModel by UI5.

In this example a .xsjs script is used to perform explicit upload, but it does not leverage the ODataModel.

I would highly value if anyone could share any known best practice on how to do this.

Can anyone please assist?

Thanks, regards

Vincenzo

    Hi Vincenzo,

    What you need is a Media Entity in your OData service.

    Read about Media Link Entries/Media Resources within OData.org.

    Hana OData designer should have ways to expose media entities.

    SAP Netweaver Gateway's way of handling is here. You need to find a similar way within HANA environment.

    Regards
