How do fiori smart templates work

105 Views Last edit Mar 03, 2017 at 08:12 PM 2 rev

I needed to understand how and what SAP UI 5 does with o-data annotations to generate a UI (smart-template) without any need of javascript code. I need to understand this algorithm and implement (at least part of it) in JAVA for some project. What would be the initial point to start? I have not found any blogs/documentation on this.

I have seen lots of material on how to use and create a smart-template based UI but that's not what I am interested in... I want to know how SAP UI5 javascript merges and understands all the annotations (from different resources) and create a UI.
