Hi, I find it difficult to develop Java using WebIDE for HANA (I'm on an express edition)

Is there a way to develop in Eclipse? Just transferring Java files to eclipse doesnt work as I cant find the required SAP Libraries

Good enough start would be if I could get the sample proejct from to compile on Eclipse

Hi Raghavi. No, the tutorial is fine and working.

I have hard times extending though. No Code completion. No information on the used classes (* -- didnt find javadocs, nor jars). Even have to guess RequestType constants.

But the question is also more generic in its own right: is it possible to use eclipse for the development (even if i cant deploy from eclipse)


Hi Raghavi,

I have the same problem. I was a Java developer before SAP. I know you have put lots of efforts to the Web IDE project. But could I say it's still toooooo premature to use? It's unfriendly, very slow, sometime annoyed error popup just drives me crazy.

I don't think this could attract more and more developers to SAP/HANA community.
