Run the New App in the Fiori Launchpad

Prerequisites

  • Based on the OData service metadata, you have created an SAP Fiori application in SAP Web IDE.

Context

An app based on smart templates uses predefined template views and controllers that are provided centrally, so that no application-specific view instances are required. The SAP UI5 runtime interprets metadata and annotations of the underlying OData service and uses the corresponding views for the SAP Fiori app at start up. To run the resulting list-reporting app for sales order items, we will be using a local sandbox for the SAP Fiori Launchpad as a simplified environment that you can use for local testing. This ensures that the app can be embedded properly into the SAP Fiori Launchpad.

Procedure

To run and test your app without defining a new run configuration, proceed as follows:

  1. In the SAP Web IDE, select the project you want to run.
  2. In the main toolbar, click the Run button.
