What is the difference between SAP UI5/UX and SAP Fiori?

Hi,

I have undergone some brief description on SAP UI5/UX and SAP Fiori but both seems to be same, unfortunately, I didn't find any major difference among the both. Please help me on this with a sample example. Thank you.

    Thanks to all, finally I got the answer as follows.

    SAP UI5 is a framework to built the mobile applications which can be deployed on any device ( device independent -- iPads, Smart Phones ) using Netweaver Gateway + Odata services.

    SAP Fiori is the package of all standard mobile applications which can be enhanced based upon our requirement. However, all these standard mobile applications are initially developed using SAP UI5.

    Hi,

    In short,

    Fiori - is the new user experience for SAP and also a brand name for mobile apps in SAP.

    SAP UI5 - stands for SAP UI Development Toolkit for HTML5, using this you will develop the Fiori apps.

    Hope it is clear.

    If you develop an application with the UI5 SDK it is called an UI5 application. However Fiori is a subset of the UI5 SDK. Fiori applications are based on mandatory Design Guidelines. Fiori apps are built as an UI5 component and can run into the Fiori Launchpad.

    Hi,

    In my understanding Fiori has more layouts, templates and guideliness how it should look like so everything is coherent. In UI5 you have some general hints, but you're free to develop whatever.
