How to design my SAPUI5 application?


Hi there,

I'm new to SAPUI5 and I'm currently building my first application.

It should be used to approve requests (access to shared folders/mailboxes/applications etc.) created in SAP BPM.

Currently the UI is based on WDJ and I'm replacing it with SAPUI5.

The application should display the following data:

  • Requester details (first/last name, personnel number, company)
  • Request data: This depends on the request type, because for each request type different fields are filled
  • Initiator: This information is only available if the request has been started 'on behalf' of somebody else

The application should provide two buttons: "Approve" and "Decline".

If the user declines a request, a reason has to be entered.

Only single requests can be processed, so a approver will open each request separately.

This is how the WDJ application looks like (here it shows an application access request):

The new application should use sap.m library, because a main requirement is the ability to run on mobile devices.

I've had a look at the Building SAP Fiori-like UIs with SAPUI5 in 10 Exercises blog, but I'm not sure if that's applicable for my requirements.

To all SAPUI5 experts out there: How would you design this application?

Which layout elements would you use?

Does it make sense to build a Fiori-like app for this scenario?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,
