Test Your SAPUI5 Application on an ABAP Server

To test an SAPUI5 application that you have uploaded to an ABAP system, you can directly launch its public URL in a browser window.

Prerequisites

  • You have shared a SAPUI5 application via the SAPUI5 team provider with the ABAP system.
  • You have synchronized the application with the ABAP system.

Procedure

  1. You have the following options to launch a synchronized file, for example the index.html, on the ABAP server:
    • Right click the file in the Project Explorer and choose Start of the navigation path Run As Next navigation step Run On ABAP Server End of the navigation path.
    • Open the file in an editor and from the Eclipse and choose Start of the navigation path Run As Next navigation step Run On ABAP Server End of the navigation path.
    The launch option is only available if the file is accessible via URL, for example, if it is in the WebContent folder. The URL of the selected file is opened in a browser window. The URL has the following pattern:

    <protocol>://<host name>:<port number>/sap/bc/ui5_ui5/<namespace>/<application name>/index.html?sap-client=<client>&sap-ui-language=<language>&sap-ui-appcache=false

    Note This URL contains test parameters. Do not use them for productive use.
  2. Another option to start your application is to select the SAPUI5 application-specific Internet Communication Framework (ICF) node in transaction SICF under sap/bc/ui5_ui5/<namespace>/<application name>, and choose Test Service from the context menu. This starts your index.html page automatically.
