    Its looks like binary data in base64 format.

    Best approach to display any media files in UI5/Fiori apps is to create entity type media and call GET_STREAM method. It will give you url with .../.../$value.

    If you want to go with current approach then,

    1>> To open in new tab.'data:application/pdf;base64,'+oContainer, '_blank');

    2>> To open in your UI5 app in same view.

    In View:

    <Panel id="idPanel" > </Panel>

    In Controller:

    var oPanel = this.getView().byId("idPanel");
    var data = "data:application/pdf;base64,"+oContainer;
    var html = new sap.ui.core.HTML();
    html.setContent("<iframe id='adobeTag' type='application/pdf' src='"+data+"' style='width:99%;height:100% !important;' ></iframe>");
