|Automatic content refresh for integrated HTML5 applications after update
The following section describes some workarounds that are nessessary concerning the current status of the launchpad and potentially missing features.
Issues using latest SAPUI5 release
By default, when running applications from the HTML5 content provider, the applications use the latest official UI5 version.
It it currently not possible to define another version like in the NEO platform using:
|currently >= 1.109
|1.108 vs 1.96 vs 1.81
|any cloud released version
Application specific UI5 version
To overcome this missing feature off centrally manage the used version, you can control the used version on app level (see Expose HTML5 Applications in SAP Launchpad service).
"_version": "1.49.0", // >=1.109
// Replace patch with [X|x|*] to get
// automatic updates of latest patch
// Minimum version of SAPUI5 your component requires
Automatic patch updates are highly recommended!
To ensure outdated versions are no longer posing a potential security risk, SAP removes SAPUI5 versions from the SAPUI5 CDN one year after their end of maintenance. In addition to this also patches of versions in maintenance which are older than one year will be removed. Details see SAP Note 3001696.
Problem with SAP Horizon Theme and apps below version 1.101
The new SAP Horizon theme (Morning and Evening) is only available with a SAPUI5 version >= 1.101. If you use at least one application specific version below, you are no more able to use a Horizon based theme by default for your Launchpad!
