We would like to develop similar app at S4Hana Public cloud from scratch. We are beginner to such development. Although there are many references in the community and SAP help but it is adding more confusion. We would like to be focus by understanding step by step guidance which gives us idea of development. 

We would like to know best approach to achieve our goal. We have below questions:-

  • Which programming model to be preferred? - CAP or RAP
  • As it is totally cloud environment, How to create ZTables or custom objects?
  • How to store data, retrieve data from Z or Standard tables? 
  • Which development IDE and environment to be preferred?
  • How to retrieve and display data on Fiori based frontend. The records will be also added/ modified through same frontend.
  • How to use APIs?

Please excuse for lame questions if any. Appreciate your expert guidance.
