2.1.0 • Public • Published

    npm version


    ui5-task-nwabap-deployer is a custom UI5 Tooling task which allows to directly deploy the builded sources to a SAP NetWeaver ABAP application server.

    Starting from version 2.0.0 this deployer uses the OData Service /UI5/ABAP_RESPOSITORY_SRV for deploying UI5 sources. Please make sure that the service is activated on your system (for details you can check SAP note 2999557). The new service does some sanity checks like e.g. virus scans. If you have not configured virus scan profiles or want to disable virus scanning please have a look to SAP note 2437892. Current deployer versions starting from version 2.0.0 can be used with SAP systems on which component SAP_UI 753 is installed. On systems with a lower version of component SAP_UI, you have to use version 1.x.x of this deployer.


    npm install ui5-task-nwabap-deployer --save-dev
