What is wrong with my WebIDE


I've recently started developing on HANA express Web IDE. I am not using Hana Cloud Platform, rather HANA express 2.0 installed on an AWS instance.

I've tested the Hana Cloud Platform WebIDE through a trial account before, and now I am wondering if there is a difference in the WebIDE I'm using on Hana Express. A big difference I notice in my current WebIDE is the the ability to make templates. The first template I have is just Multi Tartget Application. Then if I make a MTA project, I only have templates for Modules like SAPUI5 HTML Module, node.js Module, SAP Fiori Launchpad Module. Whereas before, you could just make a Master-detail like app from a template.

Another thing I want to test are things like .xsodata services and deploy to fiori launchpad, but those options are not available through my WebIDE.

    The Web IDE on SAP CP "only" supports the development of UI5/Fiori applications. The Web IDE for SAP HANA supports the implementation of Multi-Target-Applications which can contain one or several modules of different types (as you have already listed). The Web IDE for SAP HANA has the same (+ more features at the moment) like the Web IDE, Multi-Cloud Version on SAP CP.

    The ability to create Fiori Master/Detail applications respectively modules is there - in the Web IDE for HANA - since HANA 2.0, SPS00. Check the post here and the documentation here.

    The option to create and test .xsodata services is already there. You have to create a Node.js module with XSJS support enabled. Please check the documentation for that or the very detailed latest OpenSAP course for HANA Native development.

    In case you have specific issues, please add more details to your question (e.g. screenshots), which describes which part you are missing. And please also add the information what revision of HANA express you are running.
