Build UIs based on SAP Fiori UX for Processes with SAP BPM @SAP TechEd 2016

ℹ   Please find below the updated links to the sessions at SAP TechEd Barcelona

Starting with SAP NetWeaver 7.3 EHP 1 SPS 13, we introduced a UI Generation for SAP Business Process Management (SAP BPM) based on SAPUI5 and continuously improved this generation based on feedback we received over time. At this years SAP TechEd we want to share the latest version of this UI Generation with you in our 2 hours Hands-On Workshop INT264. In this session, you will deep-dive into the enhancements we delivered with our latest releases and learn how to use these enhancements to build modern user interfaces.

You will learn more about two major enhancements:

  1. Since SAP NetWeaver 7.5 SPS 02, SAP BPM offers the possibility to generate SAPUI5 UI components, compliant with the SAP Fiori guidelines, for BPM tasks. The generated UI uses sap.m UI elements and controls, supports specialized controls (e.g. date picker) for specific data types and generates a drill-down-enabled table for collection-based data types (see Blog Generating Fiori UIs).
  2. NetWeaver 7.5 SPS 03 enables the same functionality for a process start as well as intermediate message triggers.

In our Hands-On Workshop, you will complete a predefined process model by implementing the process start as well as multiple human activities along with the according user interfaces. You will do this by leveraging the latest SAPUI5 Generation in the NetWeaver Developer Studio. Afterwards you will slightly adjust the generated UI the achieve something similar to the following UI:

Curious? Want to get hands-on? Join our INT264 TechEd session to learn more about how to build modern user interfaces for your SAP BPM processes based on this UI Generation.

Looking forward to see you in person.

      Hi Andre,

      Is it possible to change the UI5 Generated files to be extended exhaustively and then deploy it in Gateway Server.If so please provide a proper documentation.We are in a critical situation to show a POC.

      Hi Vishnu,

      the UI Generation is intended to accelerate UI development for BPM by generating a basic framework which can be easily extended according to your needs. It is prepared to be deployed on a NetWeaver system and hence generated within a NetWeaver Web DC. However, you can copy over the files to any other container. Depending on the container you might need to do special configurations. For instance, you could import the generated files into Web IDE and deploy it on HCP. When deploying the UI somewhere else, please make sure to adjust the UI configuration within the BPM Task. Moreover, it might be necessary to make use of a reverse proxy (e.g. SAP Web Dispatcher) to comply with Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) policy of modern browsers. I’m not aware of any tutorial describing this scenario, but I would be more than happy if you would share your experience with the community!

      Best Regards,
