Is there any detailed documentation for XML View which explains syntax

Hi UI Experts,

This is very generic question. Most of the SAPUI5 developers are from Webdynpro ABAP or Webdynpro Java background who are used to develop SAP web applications with SAP tools, with very little or no UI code and more business logic with ABAP.

So it is very painful to work on SAPUI5 development as this application development is confusing with more options like XML view, JSON View, HTML View and java script view etc.....

As we all know all standard fiori applications are developed with XML views AND Web IDE layout editor works with XML and SAP provided SAPUI5 documentation with JSON or Java script, it is confusing us where to find the right document to develop application with XML Views?

We all know that in SAP application development process, we don't have any separate UI developer. Everything should be handled by one developer.

Can any one answer below questions please:

  1. How to co-relate XML View syntax with UI development tool kit for HTML5 (SAPUI5).
  2. Is there any separate guide for XML?

Before posting this thread I have gone through few threads like Which is the preferred view for SAPUI5 Application ?

Andreas Kunz gave very detailed explanation on XML but still few things are not clear as above.

Thank you in advance.
