In this Getting Started
section, you have
the opportunity - starting from an already existing data model - to develop a simple
list - reporting scenario based on the standardized ABAP programming model for SAP
Fiori. You will be guided step-by-step through the new development infrastructure, which
includes technologies such as Core Data Services (CDS), SADL, and SAP Gateway.
this scenario, the assumption is that the business logic is already provided with the
FPM application model and that it allows users to create and manage sales orders. In the
first step, you will use the well-known ABAP Development Tools to implement a CDS
consumption view as a new data model layer, using a data source that is already provided
with the EPM application.
From within your development environment, you can continue
with the next step towards consumption of the corresponding OData service. Here, you
will use the CDS tools as part of the ABAP development environment to generate all
artifacts that are required for service activation in the SAP Gateway hub.
as the OData service is activated in the SAP Gateway, it is ready for consumption
through an OData client, such as an SAP Fiori app. Therefore, in our final step, we are
going to build a Fiori UI using Smart Templates as Fiori building blocks. Finally, you
can test the resulting list-reporting app within the SAP Fiori Launchpad environment.
