Check versions of SAPUI5 on ABAP and JAVA stacks

While checking the version of SAPUI5 libraries on the ABAP stack is widely known, I could not find anything to check the version on the JAVA stack.

One way to see the version is to go to anything UI5 in portal and press CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+P.  This will provide you an SAPUI5 version, only for the stack you indicated the libraries should be consumed from.

For finding the version on the ABAP stack, there are several posts letting you know you can use the following URL:


But for the JAVA stack, I had to open an incident to find out there is a URL for that also:


We have found that while we consume the libraries from the ABAP stack, we build our theme for the FFP on the JAVA stack and if the versions are not kept in sync, we see inconsistencies in the theme.

      You can also check the SAPUI5 on the Java stack in the following way:

      1) Browser to http://<host>:<port>/sapui5

      2) Open developer tools and type sap.ui.version in the console

      You are correct, in fact, currently in our system, we have 1.28.35.

      The URL SAP support provided above reports 1.28.34.

      sap.ui.version reports 1.28.34

      sap.ui.versioninfo reports 1.28.35.

      Somewhat confusing....

      hi Roger Beach,

      Thanks a lot for sharing this valuable information ,

      on running this URL  : http://<host>:<port>/sapui5/resources/sap/m/.library , i could find the runtime version at my server is 1.38.8

      Please suggest how to upgrade this version to latest 1.60.0

      That's a bit of a loaded question.  It depends on the version of the portal you are running as to whether you could even get to 1.60.0.  Assuming you can, it requires updating the SAPUI5 JAVA component.

      But for netweaver 7.50 SP13 patch 11, at this time you can only get to 1.52.
