    • Hi Pavan,

      Thanks for your comments.Please let us know how we can help you more.


  1. Thanks for this turorial 🙂
    But after “test service” I get the error “File sap/zhelloworld/index.html NOT found!”

    All the other stuff just worked fine.
    But i recognized, my index.html is in a webapp folder, not in a webcontent. But I think, that’s just a newer naming convention. I am working on Gateway 7.5.

  2. Thank you for this tutorial.
    What if I wish to update code in SAPUI5 application and want my service to be updated?
    Now I upload my application with new name and new service is created. This is appropriate for learning but not for production usage.
    Please advice

    • Hi Svetlana Shlapak,

      SAPUI5 application and OData service development are different. We develop OData service in SEGW transaction and if you want to create/change any service you have to do it here(SEGW).
      Updating SAPUI5 application will not have any impact on backend OData service.

      I hope this answers your question.


  3. Hi,
    First thanks for your tutorial.
    Question: How is this different from doing a Team/Share project via Eclipse ? Is there any difference at all?

    Thank you.


  4. Hi again,

    I succeed uploading the project using your tutorial.
    I named it for the purpose ZTESTUI5_1.
    In sicf, it is activated.
    When I test it, I get a 404 HTTP error.

    Any guess?


    • Hi,
      I found the problem.
      When I exported the project to the folder, it created a folder ZTESTUI5_1 under another ZTESTUI5_1.
      It should not be like that.
      That was my mistake.

      Hope it helps.
