Web hosting of pages created using SAPUI5

Hello Experts,

I have a domain and a web server in my name.
I have created an SAPUI5 application. The view has been created as firstUI5.view.xml and the controller is firstUI5.controller.js and there's an index.html.

I want to deploy my web page developed in SAPUI5 in that server.

I also want to know how the back-end connection between the SAPUI5 application and database will be established.

Any help will be highly appreciated. TIA

    Hi - There are 2 different topics in this question

    1. Hosting an SAPUI5 app in your domain / web page - This can be done. Also in your component.js file you should be loading the SAPUI5 libraries from the CDN

    2. Connecting to backend system- a.) If the app is hosted on SCP the HANA Cloud Connector establishes the connection between App & SAP backend system

    b.) If the App is hosted on SAP Gateway then Gateway system takes care of connections to other SAP systems using trusted RFc

    A quick win to achieve your scenario - Deploy your app on your domain, expose the backend system calls as web services. Maintain the server url in your manifest.json under the sources path and then using relative URL’s you should be able to make the calls

      Hi Naveen,

      Thanks for the quick response. This seems helpful.

      But, How do I achieve this if the app is hosted on 000webhost. In fact, Is it possible to host SAPUI5 app on 000webhost in the first place??
