DEV_xxx user credentials



I hope someone can help me.

I added my hanatrial db to the list of systems and created a couple of tables there.

I am now trying to log on to the hana db using this document : Connect to SAP HANA via JDBC - SAP HANA Developer Guide for SAP HANA Studio - SAP Library

So the format would be sth like :

connection = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:sap://[dbURL]:30015?reconnect=true&timeout=0",[USER], [PWD]");

The property window tells me that the URL is "jdbc:sap://localhost:30015?reconnect=true&timeout=0 " (is this correct ?? )

and the USER is of type "DEV_[xxxxxxx]"

but I'm not sure how to get the password.

I assumed there was some sort of mapping to my GLOBAL ID and PW so I tried these but it seems to hang at the connection point and never succeed.

If I use the DEV_ user with my GLOBAL password (or empty) it returns a "[10]: invalid username or password" error

Where can I find or reset the DEV_xx user credentials ? or am I missing sth altogether ?
