In this blog I am collecting information about what you can do in advance when attending a SAP CodeJam about SAP Gateway and provide links about SCN blogs that we will use in such an event.
What to prepare in advance
*Remember this is a "bring your own laptop" event**
You have to bring your own laptop with you. On this you have to have installed SAPGUI to work with the SAP Gateway design time, the SAP Gateway Service Builder. In addition you need a browser to access the SAP Web IDE.
We will provide a SAP Gateway Sandbox system for the time of the event. This will however be dismantled afterwards. So if you want to work in a system that is available after the event we recommend to go for a SCN Trial Editions of SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP 7.5. More information how to get your hands on a trial version can be found here: http://www.sap.com/abaptrial
In order to connect to the Gateway System and to develop your own services you have to have SAPGUI installed on your desktop.
If not already installed you can get it here: http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/index?rid=/webcontent/uuid/1024acfb-5b30-2e10-f2bd-ccce5d8692b1
Though the link above tells you that you will be downloading a "SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP 7.03 64-bit Trial" you will get a mail that contains several download links so that you are able to download SAPGUI only without the need to download a complete ABAP AS 7.03 .
SAP Web IDE
In order to generate a SAP UI5 application that can consume the OData service that you are going to build we will use SAP Web IDE.
There is no need to install anything on your laptop since SAP Web IDE runs in the SAP HANA Cloud platform.
The only thing that you have to do is to register for a free HCP developer account using your SCN credentials.
This you can do here: SAP HANA Cloud Cockpit
A file to import the destination of the ABAP demo system we use has been attached to this blog. You only have to replace the IP-Address that we will share with you when you attend the event.
Get the ABAP Development Tools for Eclipse
Install the latest version of the ABAP Development Tools for Eclipse from the update site SAP Development Tools for Eclipse. This tool is needed if you want to create your own CDS view.
