SAPUI5 on eclipse

Hi

We are just starting to experiment with SAPUI5.

To do this we have installed Gateway Services

along with sap fiori apps on our R3 application server.

I can also see the applications running on my IE11

browser.

From what I understand to extract data from R3, I

need to use OData DEvelopment ->Integration Gateway

plugin in Eclipse.  I also installed this plugin.

Now, to connect to the integration gateway

what URL do I need to use?

Do I have to install SMP3 separately?

Can you tell me the components I have to

instation to get a SAPUI5 with ODATA

services up and runninng?

By the way, on a local computer where

my eclipse is installed, I also installed

Tomcat. Now if I deploy a SAPUI5 Application

(without consuming ODATA services) onto

this web server everything runs smoothly.

Regards

Yuval

    HI Yuval Peery,

    If your requirement is to develop mobile apps from R/3 systems , use SAP Gateway . (formerly SAP Netweaver Gateway) . SAP gateway helps us to generate OData services from SAP Backend systems. Few Components are to be installed in ERP systems (or) seperate Netweaver systems to setup Gateway. The components to setup gateway are listed here

    Integration Gateway is specific to SAP Mobile Platform to generate OData services from NON SAP backend sources.

    Do I have to install SMP3 separately?

    Yes , SMP 3 .0 is to be seperately installed to use Integration Gateway.

    Once OData services are developed from Non SAP backends using IG , the services can be read from


    http://smp3server:8080/gateway/odata/sap/servicename;v=1

    Also , please look at the Integration Gateway section here for few guides to develop OData from different NON SAP data sources.

    Can you tell me the components I have to instation to get a SAPUI5 with ODATA services up and runninng?

    Install a UI5 plugin either in Eclipse , or use the libraries at

    Hi Yuval,

    Here are my two cents,

    If your requirement is to get an Odata service to create a simple sapui5 app you can request for a Gateway trial, Getting started with the SAP Netweaver Gateway Service Consumption System It has sample Odata services to test.

    Or if your requirement is to expose Odata service from your backend you have two options:

    1. Use SAP Gateway - it's free for SAP business suite customers. It supports only SAP, ie you can't expose Odata from a non-SAP data-sources like JDBC or SOAP.
    2. Use Integration Gateway (IG) - It comes with SMP 3, ie you need to install SMP 3 to use it. It converts non-Odata protocols to Odata that can be consumed in your sapui5 app.

    You can find many examples in SCN on how to create Odata service using IG.
