Libraries and Supported CombinationsLocate this document in the navigation structure

SAPUI5 provides a set of JavaScript and CSS libraries, which can be combined in an application using the combinations outlined below.

The sap.m library is currently the "leading" library for SAPUI5 application development, and can also be used for desktop applications. You can combine it with other compatible libraries as described below. The respective resource handler automatically handles the way in which the libraries are embedded into your application.
