Another 'How do I lock resource with Gateway' Question - and SAP UX roadmap 2015Q3

587 Views

Hi Experts,

So far, based on various discussions/blogs in SCN, it looks like future direction application development is going to be sap Fiori UX (i.e. gateway/UI5 combo).

So what is going to happen to state-full application development in the future ?

I am not sure if this means we have to ditch state-full application development or Gatway/UI5 is going to support State-full application development.

What is going to be the direction for complex standard SAP applications that requires pessimistic locking ? will SAP use fiori or FPM ?

Every time I see discussions about concurrency control with Gateway/UI5 - only answer seems to be convincing customers to use optimistic locking or tricking soft state to make application state-full.

I did notice this slide in SAP UX roadmap 2015Q3

  • SAPUI5
    • Creation of consumer-grade, stateless apps
  • Floorplan Manager / Web Dynpro ABAP
    • Creation of functional, stateful apps

Meanwhile Fiori floor plans have details on how to display locked records.

https://experience.sap.com/fiori-design/floorplans/edit-with-subpages/

(look for pessimistic locking at the bottom of the page). This is really confusing.

So My question is

For complex state-full applications that requires locking, should I still stick with Floor Plan Manager ?

Or is there a new feature or option coming in the future to support complex state-full application in sap Fiori (i.e. gateway/ui5)?

Is there any SAP document that gives clear distinctions for these kind of UX decisions (specifically for developers) ?

Thanks

Austin
