WebIDE for SAP HANA 2.0 (SPS02) crashes frequently on Git Push

I have not statistically evaluated this, but from my feeling SAP WebIDE for SAP HANA is crashing in more than 50 percent, when making a "Push" to the remote git repo or when making a "Commit and Push".

The circumstances are as follows:

  • Version: SAP Web IDE for HANA 2 SPS 02 Patch 0 ( Build 4.2.14 )
  • working on a feature branch (but it also happens when working on the master branch)
  • I always enter my credetials for the remote git repo before push as I not storing them
  • normally I have also a nodejs and html modul running, after this error (they also dead!!!)
  • Error Message "...detected severe runtime error ... we need to disable "javatools" ..... Remove Feature and Reload SAP Web IDE

The push is likely mostly successful and I can see the commits on the remote repo (luckily)

I have to restart various xs apps (di-core, webide, javatools,..) to get again a useable WebIDE.

Any hint how this can be prevented, as this "feature" makes SAP WebIDE for HANA not very productive for development?

Many Thanks in advance, HP

Hi, HP;

I had a similar situation and it was di-core and di-runner actually crashing (and Web IDE complaining because it's lost its backend services). I upgraded to 4.2.21 (delivered last Friday with Rev 23 of HXE) and scaled both services to 512M by changing the mtaext file and stopped having this random crashes. Maybe this applies to your situation and helps.

You probably already know this, but in case someone else bumps into this answer: this makes the footprint bigger, so I free up RAM by stopping services I am not using.

Also, here's a guide for updating HXE:

Hi Lucia,

great to hear from you and thanks for your quick answer. I will give it a try as soon as possible. Sounds very promising!

I guess you meant the Rev 22 of HXE from 15th December (HXE Release Notes)?

Which servies do you not use on HXE and did you therefore stop?

Best Regards, HP


That's right, it's the 22nd actually Unless I need it, I stop the cockpit, java tools and product installer, for example.


Hi Lucia,

the described steps in the tutorial are not possible for me, please see

Perhaps I missed something?

Thx, HP


Ok, got the update of HXE to rev22 with help of community (tai-le thx) finished. Did run more than 1 hour!!!

But versions are now up2date:

Let's see if the behavour will improve
