Source-Version Control in WebIDE with ABAP Frontend Server

Hi Experts,

actually im testing around in SAP WebIDE.

In former projects i always used Eclipse for development.

So now im facing a "problem" in WebIDE and I was wondering if this is just a bad configuration(thinking) from me or this is not possible with the use of WebIDE for development:

Lets say we have two developers using WebIDE without Git-Integration, working on the same Application. Now when both deploy their workspace to the ABAP Repository it is possible that Developer A overwrites the changes of Developer B.

It looks like "The one who deployes last wins.."

In Eclipse this was/is not possible due to the SAPUI5 TeamProvider Plugin. If the Source-Versions differ you get an "conflict", so how is this solved in WebIDE?

Even if you use Git-Integration you always have the chance to deploy the application to the Backend without any Source-Version Control?

Is this just "still in development progress" or a feature that will be missed in SAP WebIDE?

Thanks for your informations!

    Hi Sascha,

    You're right. In Eclipse the deployment was together with a source control, but in Web IDE it's not the case, and it's not planned to be implemented either.

    You should use Git to develop your app and only when the app is ready, deploy it to the BSP repository.

    Hope this helps,
