Creation of SAP Fiori Starter Application without setting up Eclipse platform and Java Runtime in 15 minutes

Few weeks back when I tried to create my first fiori application it takes hell lot of time to Installed and configured required software and environment like (Eclipse Platform, Java Runtime etc.), even if you don’t have proper match for OS and Java Runtime you can’t run the Eclipse platform say if you have 32 bit Window OS then you should have same 32 bit JRE version otherwise Eclipse will not run. And to rectify that error even a big challenge.

Then I come across of SAP Web IDE (formally  SAP River RDE) which is very helpful and easy to access, to use SAP Web IDE you just need to have a browser and an account on SAP HANA Cloud Platform Cockpit (which is free).

So, I am sharing my experience to beginners like me. Let’s Start

  1. Once you created your account on Cockpit logon to your account and you should get below screen.
