Key Concept

The user interface (UI) development toolkit for HTML5 (commonly known as SAPUI5), is a technology that provides a lightweight programming model for desktop and mobile applications. The SAPUI5 run time is a client-side HTML5 rendering library with a rich set of standard and extension controls. SAP NetWeaver Gateway is a technology that allows desktop and mobile SAPUI5 applications to connect with SAP systems. SAP NetWeaver Gateway uses Open Data (OData) protocol and the REST-based approach to connect client-side applications with SAP systems in a secure way.

HR Renewal 1.0 is developed using SAPUI5 and requires SAP NetWeaver Gateway. SAP NetWeaver Gateway is a development framework, which is available as an SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP (AS ABAP) add-on, which you can install on top of your existing SAP Business Suite or application platform. SAP NetWeaver Gateway connects SAPUI5 to the SAP system’s back end (e.g., SAP Employee Central Component [ECC]) securely. The HR Renewal 1.0 deployment options are outlined in Figure 1.

Note
HR Renewal 1.0 is an add-on for SAP ERP enhancement packages that contains new capabilities for some SAP HR areas. HR Renewal 1.0 is based on landing pages that display the SAPUI5 applications based on the SAP back-end role content. To learn more about HR Renewal and its functionalities (including landing pages, search lanes, and CHIPS) please refer my earlier article, “Learn How to Configure the Quick View Panel in the Search Lane and Workforce Viewer of HR Renewal 1.0 Feature Package 4.”

Methods for Installing SAP NetWeaver Gateway

There are two different ways for installing SAP NetWeaver Gateway in the servers:

  1. The SAP NetWeaver Gateway can be installed on a dedicated server (referred as Standalone Gateway system or Central Hub deployment).
  2. The SAP NetWeaver Gateway can be installed on the same server where the SAP Business Suite or SAP ECC system resides (referred as SAP Embedded Gateway system or embedded deployment).
