Deploy a Web IDE extension project to ABAP UI5 system

I've written this very same message under this blog entry: https://blogs.sap.com/2015/03/03/extend-a-fiori-application-with-sap-web-ide-part-3/

But i've read, as answers to other users who has asked question not directly related to the topic treated, that they better create a new question. So that's what I'm doing.

The depicted instructions in the above tutorial is quite clear and easy to follow. But my question is: how can you deploy the result of the extension to the ABAP UI5 system from which it has been imported, in order to replace the original standard application?

I mean, is there any way, through Web IDE or through the GUI of the Gateway system (SE80 or SE19 transactions, perhaps) to replace the BSP application which responds to a standard one, with the one extended?

    Ignacio,

    You can't replace an standard app. The extension itself will be based on the standard app. So if you replace the standard one your extension will stop working.

    Perhaps what you need is to create a new Fiori Catalog and Group and assign the extension to an user instead of using the standard catalog.

    Why would you want to replace the standard app? This app may get updates from SAP.. The proper way is to extend the standard app and deploy it along side the standard app.

    Ok; perhaps the "replace" word is not completely proper.

    I've thought seeing the Web IDE "extension" project as a similar concept to the implementable BAdI's or enhacement points through transaction SE19 on ECC, SRM or CRM SAP software components. As you probably already know, under that concept, the transaction(s) which you are intendend to "extend" (enhance) still remain standard, in their names as well as in their functionality, except the enhanced part.

    I thought that same thing would apply on Fiori.
