Deploying SAP UI5 Applications from Eclipse

This document is a walkthrough for deploying sap UI5 Application straight from Eclipse. There are some advantages for developing sap UI5 application from Eclipse instead of NWDS. NWDS is not yet available mac os which makes it difficult for me to get the things done whereas I can use Eclipse in mac. So it makes complete sense for me to use Eclipse for SAP UI5 related development which otherwise not so easy.

Prerequisite –

  • You have eclipse installed in your system.
  • You already have created SAP UI5 web application module.

Level – Beginner

Here is a step by step guide for deploying UI5 application from Eclipse –
