SAP UI 5 – key points

What is SAPUI5 ?

The UI development toolkit for HTML5 (SAPUI5) is a user interface technology that is used to build and adapt client applications. The SAPUI5 runtime is a client-side HTML5 rendering library with a rich set of standard and extension controls. It provides a lightweight programming model for desktop as well as mobile applications. Based on JavaScript,  it supports RIA like client-side features. SAPUI5 complies with OpenAjax and can be used together with standard JavaScript libraries.

    the utilities they provide.
  2. Currently SAPUI5 only support the browser (Internet Explorer,  Chrome, Firefox, Safari, iOS, Android, Portal, UI,
    Mobile Web Application, Web application, mobile browser)  which has HTML5 capabilities are supported. 
  3. This can be used to develop application for mobile and desktop .
