NOTE: THIS TUTORIAL IS OUTDATED AND WILL NOT BE MAINTAINED ANY MORE.
Since this week SAP HANA Cloud Platform enabled Web-based HANA XS Development for Free Trial Developer Accounts!
What do you need to try out Web-based SAP HANA XS Development?
The only thing you really need here is a Firefox or Chrome Web Browser and nothing else.
Then you can launch the new Online Tutorial https://thewebide.hana.ondemand.com/tutorials/hcptrial (use Firefox or Chrome!) which guides you step-by-step through a Web-based HANA XS Development example.
How does the online tutorial work?
1. First the tutorial guides you through some prerequisite steps (e.g. make sure that you have or how you create your free developer trial account etc.)
2. After finishing the prerequisite steps you can start the tutorial step-by-step exercises
3. Execute step by step the short instructions with the pre-configured code snippets according to your settings.
4. Develop step by step the HANA XS PersonsList application on your SAP HANA System by means of SAP HANA Web IDE
Detailed Documentation for the Web-based PersonsList Development Scenario?
The on-premise development on SAP HANA Platform works partly different than on HANA Trial instance (e.g. on HANA Trial instance you have a dedicated schema you have to develop with, whereas with on-premise SAP HANA Platform you can define your own development schema).
Therefore Bertram is working on a corresponding detailed PDF document which will take the Trial HANA instance specific parts into account.
