In this advanced course, you’ll learn how to develop Java-based apps on SAP Cloud Platform using the newly updated Enterprise Sales & Procurement Model (ESPM) application. With the ESPM app, we’ll demonstrate the end-to-end process for developers to leverage the capabilities of SAP Cloud Platform for Java-based apps.
During the first two weeks of this course, you’ll learn how to develop the OData services and Java Persistence API (JPA) model with the database connection in the back end of the ESPM app. You’ll also learn how to develop the SAPUI5 web app part in the front end of the application. Security, always an important topic in the cloud, will feature in week 3 of the course. And in weeks 4 and 5, we’ll look at many additional SAP Cloud Platform services that are used in the ESPM app, such as SAP Jam Collaboration, SAP Cloud Platform Document service, SAP Cloud Platform API Management, and more. This course was updated with an additional mobile scenario for the ESPM app using SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Services.
To follow all the units effectively, you should have completed the openSAP course SAP HANA Cloud Platform Essentials. The course content assumes that you’re already familiar with the concepts and technologies introduced there.
The registration, learning content, and final exam are free of charge. You can also practice working on the platform using a free developer account. We’ll explain how you can access this in the System Preparation, which opens 1 week before the actual course starts.
Week 0: System Preparation
Week 1: The ESPM Application
Week 2: Developing the ESPM Application

If your primary interest in taking this course is getting a technical overview of the development-related capabilities of SAP Cloud Platform, you do not need access to a development system. However, we realize that many of you will be interested in developing your own code, based on the instructions in the course.
You can access your own free account for SAP Cloud Platform, and we’ll explain how to set up an account and install the necessary development tools in the System Preparation, which opens 1 week before the actual course starts. There are a few restrictions for this free account, but you’ll be able to follow the course without any problems, as the instructor will use the same system as you.
