Product Updates for SAP Business Application Studio – Release 2210

Dear community, 

release 2210 of SAP Business Application Studio is now available for our customers. This blog post highlights some of the new features included in release 2210. 

Centralized validation support 

Project Validation is a progressive framework aiming at increasing the project robustness by automatically triggering background validation tasks for various actions, such as: create, edit, or delete. This makes it possible to uncover potential issues at an early stage. It takes advantage of existing SAP technologies like the SAP Cloud Application Programming Model (CAP), the SAP Mobile Development Kit (MDK), and SAP Fiori elements as well as playing a coordinator role to dispatch validation events with results.

  • While the user is creating low-code applications with the SAP Business Application Studio, they can operate on various artifacts like database or service entities. 
  • When the operation is done, the background task can be automatically triggered accurately to invoke corresponding validators available in the current dev-space. 
  • Once the validation result is out, the user will be notified by the problems view on the bottom in case of errors. 
  • Before the user previews or deploys the project, it will also trigger validation and display errors if any with subsequent procedures blocked. 

Please note that Project Validation is not yet supported for SAP Fiori elements app. This is planned for one of the next releases.

 

Application Logic – Management UI 

The application logic is built on the top of the event handler of the SAP Cloud Application Programming Model (CAP). It includes CAP action / function as well, which could be generated via a visual approach in the SAP Business Application Studio low-code environment. It could be used to extend the OData service with customized logic, and to serve more UI integration scenarios. 

As of Q3, the main focus of the management UI is on the function generation of the CAP event handler and function stub generation of application logic.
