SAPUI5 Support OData V4 vs. OData V2

Hi all,

currently we are defining the overall architecture of a custom developed application within the HANA XSA container where we want to implement the backend functionalities with Java. The frontend is implemented with SAPUI5 where we want to use the Fiori Launchpad Service for unified user access.

Regarding the architecture, the following question arise:

Should we use ODATA V4 or ODATA V2. The new SAP SDK for Service Development makes it easy to create ODATA V4 services. The ODATA V2 is currently not supported and we have to use Olingo for it (more work for us).

  • Will be any support for ODATA V2 with the SAP SDK?
  • How good SAPUI5 supports ODATA V4?

Bes regards,

Hello, Manjinder As I Know SAPUI5 starts to support OData V4 By the end of last year. If your system needs 100% stable I won't recommend you to use V4. However, considering the system upgrade If you could accept some flaws and have time to do some optimization during development. I would recommend you to use V4, because V4 is the inevitable trend of future development. thanks
