Hi all,

Are the Web Applications developed in SAPUI5 stateless? If so, why?

Any links and documents regarding this would be useful.

Thanks and Regards,

Swetha

Hi Swetha,

  I think your are right, SAPUI5 Applications are stateless. I also think that the real point is if the REST services used by teh SAPUI5 Apps are statefull or stateless. It's when SAPUI5 consumes an OData,/JSON/XML service that the state on the backend can be relevant. There you can keep locks and leverage ABAP internal tables across requests.

If I got the question, you should evaluate the type of REST service and the technology behind it.

I always try to avoid statefull REST services but if really have a good reason, I can confirm that you can using a BSP App or a SICF Handler or take advantage of the great Neptune Application Designer that indeed provides a flag at application level for stateless (default) or statefull.
