Welcome

Hi everyone,

our openSAP course Developing Java-Based Apps on SAP Cloud Platform* (Update Q1/2017) started this week, on Wednesday, April 5th 2017, and ends on Thursday, May 18th 2017. It’s a 5 week course followed by another week for the final exam. New in this update is among others a System Preparation week which opened last week, 1 week before the actual course start. The document openSAP course guide – Developing Java-Based Apps on SAP Cloud Platform* (Update Q1/2017) – overview gives an overview over the course and has the links to all the week guides. This blog post you are reading just now will guide you through week 1 of the course and provide you with additional material, explanations or FAQ around the topic of the week. Depending on the feedback and questions inside the forum of the course I might also add additional material (e.g. videos) during and after the course to address the frequently asked questions so that you have a one-stop-shop of additional materials for this course. I hope you will enjoy the week!

Q&A

  • Hi! Webshop still empty, No schema and no data source binding. Probably a deployment that went wrong or is missing? -> Might be that somehow the database schema and binding was not created automatically. Try the following: create a database schema through the cockpit and create binding to the application. Restart the application afterwards. Then the products should appear.
