    Default Sencha Touch 2 app with SAP Gateway


    I've been working on a sencha app where I retrieve data using a SAP Gateway service. I used this tutorial:

    However, in this tutorial they only collect data, so the GET method. I also want to push data, so use the POST method.

    Is there anyone who has got some experience with that? I noticed sencha released a SAP oData connector, but I can't find any tutorials, etc. about that.

    The SAP oData connector download is here:

    The Flights Unlimited demo app in the download looks to be an excellent resource to learn from.

    The SAP OData connector works fine for Read operations, but currently only supports modifying operations (Create, Update, Delete) against a SAP Gateway service in SP02 compatibility mode. These have /sap/opu/sdata as part of their URL.

    Here is an example of a create operation against the CRM Activity service on the SAP Gateway demo system:

    Ext.define('ODataTest.model.Activity', {
        extend: '',
        requires: [''],
        config: {
            fields: [
                { name: 'Description', type: 'string' },
                { name: 'Owner', type: 'string' },
                { name: 'ActivityLocation', type: 'string' },
                { name: 'CategoryDescription', type: 'string' },
                { name: 'PriorityDescription', type: 'string' },
                { name: 'ContactPerson', type: 'string' },
                { name: 'ActivityPartner', type: 'string' },
                  name: 'SchemeID', 
                  type: 'string',
                  defaultValue: 'IWCNT~OM_CRMACTIVITY' 
                  name: 'ProcessType', 
                  type: 'string', 
                  defaultValue: 'ZKF5' 
                  name: 'Value',
                  type: 'string' 
            proxy: {
                type: 'odata',
                url: "HTTP://GW.ESWORKPLACE.SAP.COM:80/sap/opu/sdata/iwcnt/activity/ActivityCollection",
                withCredentials: true,
                useHeaderAuthentication: true,  // this enforces authentication, otherwise we get an empty collection.
                username: 'GW@ESW',
                password: 'ESW4GW'
    var activity = Ext.create('ODataTest.model.Activity', {
      Description: 'Plan sales meeting',
      Owner: '12701'  // this is the userid belonging to username GW@ESW
     (record) {
      console.log('Record saved');
    It requires some trial and error to find out which fields to send in the Create (=POST) operation. Check out the error messsages coming back from Gateway, they sometimes contain useful hints.

    Check out the following video for a demo of the OData connector:

    I hope this helps. Let me know if you need further help.
