Difference between SAP UI5 and BSP Javascript App

0 Kudos


I am very newbee on SAP UI5 development platform and trying to learn this platform on both Eclipse and SAP Netweaver sides. But I have a simple question about usage constraints of this platform.

In SAP UI5 we are coding on Eclipse and transfer this application to SAP Netweaver as a BSP application. And also we can write web applications as a BSP on SAP Netweaver with JS libraries and HTML codes without any need of Eclipse.

What is the advantage coding on Eclipse and transfering as a BSP or coding direclty BSP on SAP Netweaver.

Any answer would be appreciated.

I think you can use wizards, code snippets and code completion in Eclipse, also use some generators which are not available in SAPGUI. But technically SAPUI5 application on AS ABAP is the same as BPS (have to be  ).

But don't forget you can also create SAPUI5 applications for HANA in Eclipse....and I think you are unavble to connect to HANA from BSP envinronment in SAPGUI.

Best regards Jiri
