Updating UI5 libraries in local trial Web IDE - How?

Hi All,

I've been playing with the WebIDE for quite a while now, and while it's looking very promising, there is still no sign of an update for those who want to run it locally (while the hosted version has been updated multiple times). In addition, there is no "free" option to get official patches (yet alone use it officially). Hence, as I was building a UI today, I hit a bug with UI5 that is resolved in the latest version (to do with groupHeaderFactory in XML views failing for reference) and wondered what I should do.

I thought it might be simple to update the UI5 libraries within the Orion/Eclipse folder, but it's not set-up the way I'm used to seeing UI5 libraries so after a very short exercise, the trial ends and I'm back to using Sublime and IIS for development. Oh well, nice while it lasted, but would be nice to get proper support for using Web IDE (especially as an independent).

But to the initial reason for this discussion: Any ideas how I can address the version of UI5 libraries (noting that there must be a strong dependency with the WebIDE itself seeing it runs on UI5).

Cheers,

Matt

ps. Hosted versions are really not an option for my scenario.

    Hi Matt,

    You should be able to create a destination that points to the version you need.  After generating a project you can then modify the neo-app.json file to change the two sapui5 routes.  On both, you would change the type from a service to a destination and possibly the name and the entrypath.

    • One final note - I downloaded the latest SAPUI5 libraries (via the my previous approach of extracting them from Eclipse); and put them locally within my IIS, and it ran perfectly (sub 2 seconds).  Definitely something funny with the way it loads files when they are hosted on the web though
