Hi suchin chouta,

For large files data uploading, it is recommended to use the ajax method for a transaction with the database. Suppose I have an image that I have to upload to OData,

The view Code :

<u:FileUploader id="fileUploader" name="myFileUpload"
						width="400px" tooltip="Upload your file to the local server"
						uploadOnChange="true" uploadComplete="handleUploadComplete">
							<u:FileUploaderParameter name="type"
								value="image/jpeg" />

In the controller, first get the CSRF token, then update using ajax :

			 * To upload only the file (using AJAX).
			 * @public
                                this._token = this._model.getSecurityToken();
				var oFileUpload = sap.ui.getCore().byId("fileUploader");
				var f = evt.oSource.oFileUpload.files[0];
				var entry = {};
				entry.Photo = f;
				var url="proxy/http/XxX.xX.xX.xXx:XXXX/sap/opu/odata/sap/PROJ_SRV/userPhotoSet('"+this._id+"')/$value";
		        //var oRequest = this.getView().getModel()._createRequest();
		        var oHeaders = {
		                  "x-csrf-token": this._token
		        		//Calling the AJAX function and sending the data, the content type, as well as the CSRF token.
		                  type: 'PUT',
		                  headers: oHeaders,
		                  cache: false,
		                  contentType: false,
		                  processData: false,
		                  data: f,


Hope this helps,


Arjun Biswas.

Thanks for the suggestions

We need to send as batch OData request, as we have multiple calls will be fired.
