An SAP Fiori Elements (FE) app is an application that uses SAPUI5, its controls, and its Model View Controller (MVC) concepts. Most code of an SAP FE app is outside the project, managed centrally by the SAP FE team. The code inside a project only references these central components, which take care of creating the UI according to the latest SAP Fiori design guidelines and covers all the controller logic for you out of the box. The UI can be influenced by OData annotations. They determine, for example, which properties of an OData service make up the columns of a table that displays the content of the service.
In this exercise, you will perform the following tasks:
- Build a user interface with SAP Fiori elements1.
- Explain the advantages of using SAP Fiori elements.
- Modify the user interface with OData annotations.
You have successfully implemented an SAP CAP-based service.
