SAP NetWeaver BW Powered by SAP HANA: Three things to know when using the BW modeling tools in Eclipse
The BW modeling tools provide a new development environment editing BW metadata objects. The development environment is based on the SAP HANA studio and will be available as an own perspective in it.
The BW modeling tools support the tasks of BW modelers with a light and user-friendly Eclipse UI. Integration with ABAP Development Tools and SAP HANA
modeling empowers the datawarehouse modeler to combine SAP HANA views and BW metadata objects within the same modeling environment.
