5.Give a meaningful project name.I am giving OdataConsumingApp.Leave namespace empty.Click view type XML and name view1(we are not changing it).Click Next.Click Finish.A new project will be created in workspace.

6.Right Click Application->New->OData Service.


7.Select Service URL from sources.Then Select Odata service from dropdown menu.If you dont see your service in drop down check step 1.Type in service URL and click play button.If no error occur we can see service details in right side of the service selection.Click Next.

      Good one Rajeesh.

      I just tried creating a sample application following the above mentioned steps.But after selecting the Service Url from the sources I'm not able to find the service in the dropdown even after typing the Url there. How should I find it?

      If you are using latest version of sapui5.You can set the model in manifest.json under models section by following code

      after adding the service to the app

      "models": {
                  "" : {
                        "dataSource": "<servicename>"

      Hello Ramya

      I am newbie to SAP UI5. What is the importance of selecting the 1.28 version only here?

      As you have said, even my destination got displayed under the service drop down after I selected the version 1.28.
