Hello Experts,

I am using Eclipse ADT , Version: Mars.2 Release (4.5.2) with following versions of ABAP development tools:

ABAP development tools for SAP HANA - version 2.68

ABAP development tools for web dynpro- version 1.61

"DDL SOURCE" option is not found under Dictionary Folder to create CDS view.

Also, Core Data Services folder is missing.

Also checked with existing thread to install Neon eclipse but problem is not resolved :

Please advise.

Hi Debarshi,

prerequisite for using ABAP CDS is SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.4 SP5 or later.

Your backend system must also be configured correctly. See > "More Information" > "Configuring the ABAP back-end for ABAP Development Tools".

In general it is always good to install the latest available ADT client. I suggest you also install ADT with Eclipse Neon.

Kind regards
