Part4: Testing your application
In the previous parts of this blog I’ve created a sapui5 application. How to test this?
There are two options:
- Configure chrome
- Local webserver
Last but not least there is something about caching.
The first option is to just browse to your project by using your internet explorer or chrome or …
You copy the path of your project from eclipse:
Copy the location from the properties
Paste it in your browser
But this could give errors:
You can solve this by creating a shortcut of google chrome and add the following to the target property
But this did not always worked for me…
So another option which I mostly use is a local webserver, XAMPP: http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html
Open XAMPP Control Panel and start Apache
Then copy the project from the workspace to the XAMPP server. The link to the workspace is in the properties of the project. Copy the project and past it in C:\xampp\htdocs.
Now the application is able to run from the localhost:
If you do some changes to your application, it is possible that some parts are still cached. A good way to get rid of this caching is opening your development tools in chrome by pressing F12.
In the development tools, go to settings:
Disable cache while DevTools is open:
When Dev tools is open and you refresh the application nothing will be cached. From time to time it could be required to clear cache manually. Press CTRL + SHIFT + DEL:
So you are sure that the whole cache is cleared.
