Master handling Date/Time in E2E Fiori Scenario – Index
Generally handle with Date/Time data is a common skill for all developers.
But when you starting to develop Fiori applications, it gets far more complex than you think.
In a typical Fiori development scenario, different technologies are involved, they are ABAP, OData, and SAPUI5. There will be more backend languages involved if you use SAP Cloud Platform or other backend technologies.
In this series blog, what I want to do are:
Point out possible questions about Date/Time data.
Give the answer based on S/4 HANA scenario by examples and reference to SAP’s documents.( That means ABAP plays the backend role)
Help developer using other languages as the backend service to get the idea of how to figure out Date/Time problems in their own development scenario.
Blogs in this series planned ( with planned date ) are list below:
Identity Requirements for Date/Time operation(Plan: After all blogs of this series complete)
How ABAP deal with Date/Time
Handling Date/Time when exposing as an OData service
How SAPUI5 deals with OData Date/Time
How to handle the representation of Date/Time in SAPUI5
Handling create request for entity with Date/Time fields
Handling entity which has Date/Time key field
Using Date/Time field as OData Query Option
Dealing with Time Zone and Time Difference

Hi Steve, You might want to take a look at the SAP S/4HANA 1709 SAP Fiori app Date Function as well.
Let's you do all sorts of weird and wonderful (fiscal, seasonal, et al) date ranges and pass them to embedded analytics without any need to write ABAP code.
Thank you for your reminding!
As I know this function plays trick only when user input a date as query parameters, and rely on special applications which can understand the annotation generated from the backend.
Now I'm focusing on problems on general development, after those, I can put this topic as a special case ( for some apps on S/4 HANA 1709 ).
Looks very nice. I am really looking for time zone handling in both abap and fiori world. Looking forward to succeeding posting.
Are you planning to continue posting your 4th blog in this series ? Please do so if possible as the other blogs of yours about date/time handling in ABAP and OData were really informative.
Thanks in advance
