    Hi Deepan

    1.     Move the images folder inside WebContent folder to make it accessible.

    2.     To make the background image fit exactly to the screen, please use this CSS

    .loginPageDiv {
         background-size: 100% 100%;

    3.     Please apply following style to the app for the background shade

    body {
         background-image: -webkit-gradient(linear,left top,left bottom,color-stop(0%,#2da9b1),color-stop(50%,#178299),color-stop(100%,#1a4c7d)) !important;    
         background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(top,#2da9b1 0,#178299 50%,#1a4c7d 100%) !important;
         background-image: -ms-linear-gradient(top,#2da9b1 0,#178299 50%,#1a4c7d 100%) !important;
         background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom,#2da9b1 0,#178299 50%,#1a4c7d 100%) !important;
    #content {
         max-width: 1280px !important;

    Hope this solves your problem.

    A diverse set of questions 😉

    • Your images should go under the WebContent folder (that's what's visible/exposed by the webserver)
    • There are some jQuery plugins who does what you want, but you could also write your own logic, based on the window's width/height. And don't forget to attach it to the window's resize event handler so it will scale upon resizing too
    • I'm not really sure, but I think if you put your sap.m.App in an sap.m.Shell control, you will get the background on wider screens

    Hope it helps!
