    Hi, Welly,

    First, it IS possible to connect the web development workbench to a tenant database. You need to redirect the webdispatcher to do so.

    However, deprecation of the Web Development Workbench and HANA Studio has been announced for a while (see note https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2465027 ). In other words, if you are looking to learn the latest and the greatest, you should stick to the SAP Web IDE for SAP HANA that comes with HANA Express with XS Advanced.

    Alternatively, you can check the plug in for Visual Studio: https://www.sap.com/developer/tutorials/hxe-ua-visual-studio.html

    Steps to access the SAP Web IDE for SAP HANA are here: https://www.sap.com/developer/groups/hana-xsa-get-started.html

    Best,

    Lucia.

    Hello Welly,

    This excellent blog, HANA Studio, Eclipse, Web workbench, Web IDE cloud and Web IDE for HANA, by Sreekanth Surampally should give you a good overview of the different SAP HANA development tools and their strategic direction.

    If applicable to your SAP HANA, express edition, I would recommend to switch to the SAP Web IDE.

    Best regards

    Frank

    • Hello Welly,

      Yes, this is correct. The SAP HANA Web-based Development Workbench is a SAP XS Classic application that is meant to connect to the SAP HANA instance it has been deployed to.

      Best regards
