First Steps with SAP River RDE

DevWorkbench    Friday August 22nd, 2014   

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!
