Lost in Fiori. Where do I get valid information?

I just returned from a training on SAP Fiori App development. I feel totally lost...

Surely due to the fact that I coded for decades in ABAP, I do not seem to be able to get into the Fiori logic. All those calls to mysterial modules of even more mysterial classes. And no way to double click on the module name to see what's happening there. In the training, we did not even make it to put a simple list coming from an odata service on the screen. Not even the trainer was able to find the bug....

Where can I get valid information that helps me understanding all this stuff (especially how to access odata services)?

So I would think you should get a refund for this training.

First of all you could watch From Zero to SAP Fiori and one custom app in 30 minutes.

Then I would suggest to work through Get Started: Setup and Tutorials.

To test that without your own ABAP Backend get an account for the SAP Gateway Demo System (ES5). You can also get your own ABAP System at https://tools.hana.ondemand.com/#abap and connect that to your SAP CP Trial account using the Cloud Connector. Then you have everything like it will be later in a real customer environment.

I agree on the refund wholeheartedly. A training can be very expensive and should add a lot of value on your resume.

And the SAPUI5 Documentation wasn't mentioned in the training?

Hi,

Check this blog https://blogs.sap.com/2018/09/09/gateway-odata-service-troubleshooting-and-detailed-tracing-in-abap/

Basically what you want to do is figure out the http request and use the blog to found out how and where in the backend you can redo the request and how to debug it. Debugging ABAP is something that is familiar so it is a nice starting point.

Kind regards, Rob Dielemans

Thanks for the link. This is more a backend topic - maybe it's useful later on.
