What is a Web IDE?
A Web IDE refers to a browser-based integrated development environment (IDE) that helps companies reduce the hassle of creating, managing, and maintaining development environments across their entire technical landscape.
IDEs are built to integrate with existing app platforms to combat complex requirements across software development lifecycles and make it easier for developers to write, build, and manage business applications.
Understanding Web IDE in SAP
SAP Web IDE Full Stack is a browser-based IDE designed to help companies easily develop, build, test, deploy, integrate, and extend consumer-grade apps for business users, streamlining the end-to-end app development lifecycle and delivering a better user experience in the process.
With the SAP Web IDE, users across industries are enabled to…
- Build or extend SAP Fiori apps
- Use the UI development toolkit to access apps on desktop and mobile devices
- Develop hybrid mobile apps using UI development toolkits and Java programming language
- Build IoT apps for SAP Leonardo
- Develop dashboard and analytic apps for big data and IoT scenarios
- Extend SAP S/4HANA cloud services
- Create new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions
SAP Fiori Web IDE runs on the SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP), so there are no complex installation requirements or integration hoops to jump through to connect other services that run on SAP BTP, including SAP Fiori Cloud apps and the SAP HANA toolset.
Key Components of SAP Web IDE
Here are the main components that make up the SAP Web IDE architecture:
1) SAP BTP
Connection with the SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) allows customers to build and deploy apps that complement and extend the functionality of their SAP and non-SAP solutions across their entire SAP system, including both on-premise and on-demand solutions.
2) SAP BTP Cockpit
With a centralized point for managing all activities related to SAP BTP, users can create applications rapidly and access important information about new and existing applications whenever and wherever they need it.
3) SAP Web IDE App
The SAP Web IDE Full Stack offers an integrated development environment designed to simplify app creation and extension in SAP UI5 or the SAP Fiori launchpad.
4) SAP Gateway
With the SAP Gateway, users are enabled to connect an SAP HANA Web IDE to an external SAP system and access OData functionality to optimize connection and facilitate better collaboration across systems.
5) Cloud Connector
The Cloud Connector tool makes it easier for users to securely connect SAP Web IDE and SAP BTP to an on-premise system, reducing the amount of time and configuration effort required in the process.
Git integration provides connection to revision control and source code management systems to improve collaboration across the entire SAP system.
Who Has Access to SAP Web IDE?
The flexible SAP Web IDE tool is designed for web developers who want to create, manage, and deploy native apps in the code editor without the need for complex configuration and administration requirements in the development environment.
It provides an intuitive, secure environment to extend existing SAP UI5, SAP Fiori, and hybrid apps across systems, making it easier for developers to process and transfer data and manage critical business scenarios.
