Hi All,

Simply this blog contains complete end to end development of Fiori-Like Application......and I hope, it will be helpful for beginners

Steps Involved For Displaying Flight Details:

  1. Creation of ABAP CDS view.
  2. Creation of Gateway O Data service.
  3. Testing of GW service in Gateway client.
  4. Creation of FIORI-Like App.
  5. Deployment of SAP UI5 Application to ABAP Back-End.

Lets start......

1. Creation of ABAP CDS view.

          -  Go to HANA studio ABAP perspective and Choose the package in which you want to create CDS view. Right click on package - New - Other ABAP                Repository object - DDL source - Next

          -  Provide Name and Description

          -  It seems like below


  • Check & Activate.
  • Right click on new created DDL source i.e. ZCDS_FL and click on open data preview.

  • Same CDS view physically available/accessible in SE11


2.  Creation of Gateway O Data services

  • Now let's create O Data service which will fetch data (i.e. Query) from ZCDS_FL_SQL.
  • In terms of O Data, HTTP and ABAP we need apply operation QUERY, GET and Select * from <Table> into @DATA(ITAB) respectively.
  • Go to SEGW t-code and create new project ZFlight_Detail
  • Now right on Data Model and Import - DDIC structure option - Provide ABAP DDIC structure name i.e.ZCDS_FL_SQL as well as Entity Name.

  • Click Next and select required fields.

  • In next step mark check as key for FLIGHT_ID and CONNID and click Finish.
  • At a same time Entity Set has been created because earlier we have marked check box for create default entity set(it's SP 09 :wink: ).
  • Now let's play with runtime artifacts - Click on generate runtime objects(red and white circle) and it will pop up below screen - click enter button.

  • On successful creation we will see the below screen(plenty of green symbols :cool: )

  • Now register you service under service maintenance folder.


  • Click ok will get message service created....Yah we have maintained service... :smile:
  • Now for fetching data from DDIC artifacts ZCDS_FL_SQL we need to implement Query operation i.e. code based implementation.......
  • Now Open runtime artifacts and right click on class ZCL_FLIGHT_DETAIL_DPC_EXT - click on Go To ABAP Workbench.
  • In Edit mode redefine ZFLIGHT_DETAILSE_GET_ENTITYSET i.e. nothing but a implementation Query operation that results multiple rows.

  • We are fetching complete set of records. Below is the code.

  • Yahhh... we have done with coding part. Lets move toward for testing GW service

3. Testing of gateway service in gateway client.

  • Now click on SAP Gateway Client under IFC Nodes box screen either you can use t-code /IWFND/GW_CLIENT

  • Click on entity set name - select Zflight_DetailSet
  • It will generate automatic URI like below and hit execute button.

4. Creation of FIORI-Like App.

  • Open ABAP Prespective - Right click in the project explorer - New - Others
  • Type SAPUI and select application project

  • Hit next and provide project name.

  • After creation of project it seems like below.

  • Double click on MAIN.view.xml and paste below code :razz:

<core:View xmlns:core="sap.ui.core" xmlns:mvc="sap.ui.core.mvc" xmlns="sap.m"

              controllerName="zcds_fiori.MAIN" xmlns:html="">

       <Page title="Flight Details">


       <Table id="idProductsTable"







                     <Column> <Text text="Flight ID" /> </Column>

                     <Column> <Text text="Flight Number" /> </Column>

                     <Column> <Text text="Flight Date" /> </Column>

                     <Column> <Text text="Plane Type" /> </Column>

                     <Column> <Text text="Price" /> </Column>

                     <Column> <Text text="Currency" /> </Column>

                     <Column> <Text text="Flight Name" /> </Column>





                                  <Text text="{FlightId}" />

                                  <Text text="{Connid}" />

                                  <Text text="{Fldate}" />

                                  <Text text="{Planetype}" />

                                  <Text text="{Price}" />

                                  <Text text="{Currency}" />

                                  <Text text="{RhFligntName}" />




       </Table> </content>



  • Now go to MAIN.controller.js and paste below code.

onInit: function() {


       var oModel = new sap.ui.model.odata.ODataModel("http://XXXXXXXX/sap/opu/odata/sap/ZFLIGHT_DETAIL_SRV/",false);




Note : 'XXXXXXXXX' would be your server path.

  • Save and right click on ZCDS_FIORI -  Run As - Web App Preview and result is below

  • Now go to browser and paste URL which is generated in index.html
  • If everything went right then its time to celebrate..... :smile:

Result :

5.Deployment of SAP UI5 Application to ABAP Back-End

  • Well for deployment option you can refer below document.

Most welcome for expert suggestions......

- Cheers
