The corresponding backend code (Odata services) is part of SAP Netweaver 7.40 SP10.

Please check this document for further details on Fiori Reference Apps.

New with WebIDE 1.7

With Release 1.7 you will find a new Fiori Reference App in the WebIDE.

The new Manage Products App is focussing on Edit Scenarios like maintaining Master Data (Product master in this example). It is targetting specific challenges of create/edit cases and shows you how to handle them. Like in the other Reference Apps the backend code is part of SAP Netweaver. You will not need any ERP backend like ECC or MDM to make it work.

Please have a look at this document for further details on the Manage Products App.

      Hi Martin,

      Great stuff with adding this scenario.  Quick question: Are there any plans to keep the local trial version up to date (it's still the release from October).  In Australia, it literally take over 5 minutes just to get the hosted Trial Web IDE up and running and creating this sample project.

      Hi Matt,

      actually we're currently planning an update of the local trial version to be available in Q1 2015. We're going to announce this on as soon as possible.

      We are also evaluating intensively whether and how to release a local version of SAP Web IDE for production purposes.

      Thanks your very much for your feedback on performance. We will pass this on and work on improving the situation for the trial version. For the factory / productive version it should already now be better due to the availability of servers on the different continents.

      Thanks for the update Oliver.  This is great news about the 1.8 local version.

      In terms of HCP version, USD$60 per month for an independent like myself is way too steep to expect to pay for Web IDE in it's current format (which is great, but not great enough to justify this cost as opposed to a 1-time cost of Sublime or free Atom), but hopefully SAP can sort this out for independents in the near future. That and in addition, I'm very unlikely to be able to get a back-end connector at each client set-up regardless, just so I can use the HCP editor.

      And I just had a absurd thought, but I really hope SAP aren't pushing the HCP version to try get a backend connector in place so they can sell other HCP aspects more easily since this is the big barrier. (I assume it's more to enable a regular release cycle and move to a more SaaS model for this; though I also get concerned what happens if the WYSIWIG tools get locked into the UI5 version running on the HCP cloud since customer are typically stuck with only upgrading the minor version on their Gateway stack due to the support stack requirement.)

      Lots of info sorry - just thinking out loud.
