    The rootUri is an artificial URI you can choose how you like. The important thing is that you point your oData model to that URI once the mockserver is running.

    I always use the URI of the real service on the gateway. That way I can use the same model in my code.

    Let me give you an example:

    // assuming that your real service has the URI /sap/opu/odata/sap/my_service
    // DO NOT forget the trailing slash!
    sServiceUri = "/sap/opu/odata/sap/my_service/"
    // in your component.js you have to detect that you are running local (or any other condition for starting the mockserver)
    if(location.hostname === "localhost" || location.hostname === ""){
    // in your mockserver.js you have to initialize the mockserver
    this.oMockServer = new MockServer({
                    rootUri: sServiceUri
       autoRespond: true,
       autoRespondAfter: 100
    // get path to your metadata.xml and mockdata folder
    var sPath ="");
    this.oMockServer.simulate(sPath + "/metadata.xml", sPath + "/mockdata/");
    // now you can create your model the same way you did it with a real service, e.g.
    this._oModel = new sap.ui.model.odata.v2.ODataModel(sServiceUri);
