    Hello,

    I followed the openSAP training on SAP Fiori and found them great, congratulations !

    I have one question.

    I understood odata is used to model and get the data from the backend and EDM is the way to do it in the backend.

    Is it possible to re-use ABAP SOAP Web Services developed previously and encapsulate them automatically in EDM objects or you have to re_write them ?

    Thanks,

    Luc

    Hi Eliel,

    Thanks, I feel you got my question 🙂

    The “old classical” ABAP WS have not been developed on SAP HANA but on a “classical” SAP WAS ABAP through the ABAP WS Wizard from a RFC Function Module.

    I can wait, no worries.

    Regards,

    Luc

    Hello,

    I wanted to create a new OData Service in the SAP NW Gateway SAPES1 which is an open SAP Demo System but when I want to create a project in the SEGW, the system tells me that “I’m not authorized”. How to request the authorization ?

    Thanks,

    Luc

    Hi Michal,

    I understand and it is what I read after…

    In this case for the Developper Challenge which SAP ECC and SAP NW GW system can we use ?

    Thanks and regards,

    Luc

      Hello Luc,

      if you accept my advice you could use the local data based on JSON format to display the data in your application, it works very well and highly recommended for prototyping FIORI apps.

      Thanks

    Hello Marcos,

    Thanks, I understand and I agree you as it is what i’m doing now, using json and mock data but I wanted to go a bit further and not only doing a “fake” application for the SAP Challenge !

    Cheers,

    Luc

    Hi,

    SAP last year organized a challenge related to SAP Enterprise Portal, it will be repeated this year or there will be only one related to the cloud portal?

    Thanks a lot!

      Hi Nicola!

      There will be no challenge this year for Enterprise Portal. AT least nothing is planned until now. We will have the Cloud Portal challenge running until September this year.

    Hi,

    For some days now I cannot register my Fiori App in SAP Web IDE.

    After deploying it on my HCP Trial from SAP Web IDE, I select the option “Register to SAP Fiori Launchpad” and on the page, when I put the infos, the “Next” button is gray and I cannot press it.

    One week before, it was working and I could register my app and see it in my FLP.

    Is there something new ?

    Thanks,

    Luc

      There is a small bug there currently where you need to perform some change in the application name first in order for the Next button to become enabled. Please try it. It will be fixed in our next version.

      Regards,
      Michal.

    Thanks for any help,

        Hi Vera,

        Thanks !

        I continued to investigate and now it seems it is because of the mock data…

        Did your developers changed something in the way the mock data are managed and displayed ?

        Here is my code in the page.

        Luc

        var bRunWithMock = true;

        var sRunWithMock = jQuery.sap.getUriParameters().get(‘run-with-mock’);

        if (sRunWithMock === ‘false’) {

        bRunWithMock = false;

        }

        if (bRunWithMock) {

        jQuery.sap.require(‘sap.ui.core.util.MockServer’);

        var uri = ‘/’;

        var oMock = new sap.ui.core.util.MockServer({rootUri : uri});

        oMock.simulate(‘model/metadata.xml’, { sMockdataBaseUrl : ‘model/’, bGenerateMissingMockData : true });

        oMock.start();

          jQuery(document).ready(function($) {  sap.m.MessageToast.show(‘Running in demo mode with mock data.’, {  duration : 4000 });

        });

        }

          Hi Luc,

          Working with Mock Server is not yet supported by Cloud FLP as it conflicts with its navigation. It will be supported in our upcoming release (11B)

          In the meantime, avoid using Mock Server in your application when registering a tile.

          Thanks,

          Meni

            Hi Meni,

            Thanks for the answer. I unserstand !

            What is strange for is that the app was working fine until mid of October at least but it is true we were not using it really in the FLP, more as a direct access. Perhaps this is wrong.

          Hi Nithyanandam!

          You will receive a finalist award, also Karan Bahl. And Luc will get the winner award. It is again the same type of certificate you already got as participant: but this time it is a finalist certificate.


          Best regards

              Hi Nithyanandam!

              SCN badges and points were not part of the challenge. The creation of missions and badges takes time and is a service of the SCN team. The SCN team did not start new challenges last year (including the creation of missions and badges), because they were (and are) very busy to move the SCN community to the new experience of 1DX platform.

              Therefore we decided in our team to run our own challenge with our own awards. I hope this is ok.


              Best regards

              Vera
