In this blog I would be sharing the steps I followed to install SAPUI5 on my Windows 7 machine

Installing and Running Apache Tomcat 7.0

1. Got to Apache Tomcat 7.0 Download Page

2. Download & Run the 32-bit/64-bit Windows Service Installer by clicking on the link on this page.

3. Follow the instructions in the Installer Wizard to complete the Installation (refer for more details).

4. You can configure Windows to automatically start Tomcat7 server on startup.

Installing SAPUI5

5. Downloading UI Development Kit for HTML 5 from the link below –

6. Unzip and copy the all the .war files into /webapps folder of Tomcat 7.0.

7. Type http://localhost:8080/demokit/ in the Browser

For version 1.12.1:

     Type http://localhost:8080/sapui5-sdk in the Browser.

If a page titles SAPUI5 SDK – Demo Kit appears this confirms SAPUI5 is successfully installed on your machine. You can find further information about playing around with SAPUI5 in this application including the Developer Guide & API References.

            HI Tarun ,

            There is another tool or addon called Neptune which is SAP approved ,  is also available where we can develop mobile apps..

            To me it looks very compact having all features needed for mobile development including SAPUI5…

            And we dont have to go anywhere out to develop mobile apps … just in side SAP we can develop and export it..

            But I dont know how it differes from other mobile techs in the market..

            Kind Regards
