Testing your first project in River RDE
Before you can execute your project on the SAP HANA Cloud Platform, you have to deploy it. To deploy you project, right-click it and select Deploy > Deploy to SAP HANA Cloud. Via the git integration tool, a version of your project will be created, moved over to SAP Hana Cloud, and made available as a SAPUI5 application there.
Once you’ve done that, you’re ready to execute your project and see the results. Right-click it again and select Run > Run on SAP HANA Cloud. A popup will ask you for your SAP HANA Cloud Platform credentials. Enter them, and you will be presented with the result of your effort: a HTML website generated from SAPUI5!
Of course, this was an extremely simplified example, but it demonstrates already what River RDE is going to be: a portable, use-from-everywhere development engine that makes application development as easy as never before. I will feature more posts on River RDE and SAPUI5 in the future, showing you how to build advanced apps and use some of the pre-built user interface elements. Stay with me folks!
