The past year has been a time of growth and excitement for SAP Web IDE!

We improved the offering for our SAP Fiori developers, expanded to new scenarios, such as full-stack development, enabled high-productivity tools for cloud application development, and made advances in our continuous integration and deployment offering (CI/CD).

In addition, we recently announced that SAP Web IDE is expanding on its traditional role as the tool of choice for SAP Fiori development, and is now also the official end-to-end development environment for full-stack business applications development.

New Capabilities in SAP Web IDE Full-Stack

SAP Fiori developers will enjoy an improved development environment that includes many of the requirements and improvements they asked for last year:

  • SAP Web IDE Full-Stack includes the Storyboard, a graphical tool that presents your app in a visual manner and allows you to perform actions that will boost your productivity and simplify the overall development process.

  • The Workspace Manager helps developers organize their projects in the way that is most convenient for them, and create multiple workspaces.

  • We added the ability to sync a project's metadata.xml file whenever there is a change in the backend service.

  • Grunt capabilities are integrated into SAP Web IDE Full-Stack, allowing you more flexibility when building your apps.

  • Full-Stack developers will find that in SAP Web IDE Full-Stack they can now develop an end-to-end application, including the business logic and backend.
    For this purpose, we introduced a new development paradigm - Application Programming Model for SAP Cloud Platform.

  • We have also made some advances in the area of life cycle management and integrated with a new Beta service: SAP Cloud Platform Continuous Integration and Delivery. This service allows developers to quickly and simply create and run CI/CD pipelines for Fiori/SAPUI5 applications running on SAP Cloud Platform, thus speeding up their development and delivery cycles and improving the quality of the applications.

These are only some of the new capabilities of SAP Web IDE Full-Stack. For the full list, please see the SAP Web IDE release notes.


We continue to work together with our customers to find the best solutions and provide customer satisfaction through various events, communication channels, and projects. This year, we had several customer-facing activities. We met our customers at different events and held a customers' workshop in Germany. Customers also participated in early adopter programs and in several customer engagement initiatives (CEI's) for topics such as CI/CD and migration to SAP Web IDE Full-Stack.
