SAPUI5 smart controls are a special category of controls that help to boost application development and are part of the SAP Fiori elements offering. One specific feature of the smart controls is that they can interpret the OData protocol and adapt according to the protocol’s annotations. In order to hear more about the motivation for providing such a library for SAPUI5, their relation to SAP Fiori elements, and how they can be used, Christoph Haffner talks with Dirk Becker, Area Product Owner of the smart controls, and Thomas Houghton-Larsen, Area Architect for the Smart Controls, both with many years of experience in UI technologies.
