Mixed Scenarios with BW on HANA

Hi Experts,

I have been exploring various options available for usage of HANA models in SAP BW and vice-versa.

After following various articles,blogs and discussions following is my understanding.

Kindly validate my understandings

1.Importing BW models in HANA

- for persistence(staging) : Open Hub

- for metadata import: Importing SAP Netweaver BW models into HANA (Prerequisites HANA SP05 Rev 58 and SAP BW 7.3 SP08 ?-

2.Using HANA views in BW

- for persistence(staging) : ODP

- for non persistence in BW : Transient Providers or Virtual Providers or Virtual Master Data

Few questions on Scenario 2

consider the following two sub scenario

Scenario A : We can use transient or Virtual Providers(DTP based or function module based)

However for

Scenario B :

Can we use transient Providers ?

if yes, How will the system identify the secondary connection to open HANA database because the transaction RSDD_HM_PUBLISH doesnt have o ption to chose HANA system ?

Can we use Virtual Providers ?

If yes, How will the virtual provider be mapped to the open HANA database views?

Kindly suggest .

or Kindly correct in case i am wrong with my understanding.
