Migrating a SAPUI5 application from WEB IDE to BAS
As already declared by SAP, Business Application Studio (BAS) is the future of Web IDE . So, in this blog I will share how to migrate applications created in Web IDE to BAS.
To run a project locally on BAS we need to add some files as well as make changes in certain files.
There are blogs online to migrate the Web IDE project to BAS but that did not fulfil my requirement.
So, instead of adding files manually, I have gone by the SAP defined migration process. SAP has an online guide on this migration process. The guide defines changes the process will make in the application structure.
Migrating the Project
- SAP Cloud platform with Cloud Foundry Subaccount
- Business Application Studio Subscription
- necessary roles and Entitlements for Application Studio
- SAP Fiori Dev Space (Navigate to BAS and click on create Dev Space)
Whenever we import a project from other environment (e.g., Web IDE) to BAS, BAS recognizes the changes and tries to make the project compatible for BAS development (including local run and deployment).
Step 1: Importing the project
On the Welcome page click on import Project and select the Application’s zip file from your system. Once the import will start it will display a message as shown in the image below, Click on Start migration:
Step 2: Select HTML5 modules from MTA
On the next screen that comes, you select the module from MTA and related information like (Project Path, SAP system and destination)
And click on start migration, it will install required scripts in every module’s package.json as shown here :
Hence, in this blog we have seen how to migrate a project created in Web IDE into BAS and run it locally. You can deploy this project further on cloud and test on server.
Sorry but I don't understand the point of this blog. You're basically telling people to click the Migrate button and follow the steps.
If there were specific help on challenges/pitfalls/differences of deployment from BAS vs WebIDE, in on-premise vs cloud scenarios, or any changes that need to be made or watch out for, perhaps it would be helpful. But clicking the migrate button to import your apps isn't something that hasn't been said in every SAP documentation about BAS.
Maybe I'm missing something here.
Thankyou for the comment.
I faced the challenge with import process so I thought of sharing this blog. Speaking of pitfalls, certainly there were some, which I'm planning to write in coming series.
What was the challenge you faced? How did you resolve it?
This "blog" doesn't articulate any challenges and/or solutions.
Hey Ashwini Pardhi
nice blog. Maybe you can also add more details like.
