    Hi Venkatesh,

    in general, you can use the same development approaches on HANA Express and on Cloud Foundry. You can check for an overview which modules / resources are available on HANA and/or CF.

    And instead of the CF CLI, you need the XS CLI to deploy your application. See here for installation instructions:

    Kind regards,

    Hi Venkatesh

    HANA XSA is based on Cloud Foundry, but they are not the same. There is more information to be found in this question: is HANA XS-Advanced actually Cloud Foundry on-premise?

    If learning about Cloud Foundry and CAP is your goal, I suggest you set up a trial SAP Cloud Platform account and install the command line tools locally.
