Deploying apps from a higher version(SAPUI5 - WEBIDE) to a system with a lower one (ABAP System)

Hi experts, I'm currently in working on a Fiori project, all the applications are going to be "Z" and all the applications need to be deploy to the ABAP system. The ABAP system currently has installed SAPUI5 version 1.28.44, the thing is that i'm going to devolp my apps (SAP WEB IDE) on a higher version than the current one (ABAP system).

Is there a way to deploy my application to the ABAP System to a higher version without any problems?

Thanks in advance.

Regards

    You will have no issue in deployment. But, in the UI5 code behavior is depended on version match between ide and runtime of ABAP server.

    Best Scenario: You should be easily upgrade the UI5 version on server.

    Workaround: If that is not at all possible, then ensure that the controls or apis used in Web IDE are still available in the lower UI5 version in ABAP runtime.

    Dear Juan,

    I faced the similar situation, on my client they max UI5 version as 1.28 installed on there system,
    I developed my apps using 1.38, when I deployed my app, even simple controls that were available since 1.22 (like combo box) was not working.
    So its strongly recommended to develop your app on a compatible version.

    Thanks,
    Hamdan.

    as long as you are not using feature from higher version, you should be fine.

    Hi Juan,

    you can simply change the version your application is using in the Web IDE.

    right click on the project -> project settings -> SAPUI5, choose the UI5 version available in your ABAP server and save.

    after the update, the code completion, validations and the preview of the app will be according to this version.

    you can also update only the preview version in the run configurations -> advanced settings.

    Best regards,

    Another option is to use a CDN to get the UI5 library rather than the fiori front end server.
