Conclusion:

SAP HANA Answers works perfectly – it even narrows down to SAP HANA Academy videos – In the above screen-shot  second link refers to SAP HANA Academy video over LAG function.

      Request you to kindly fix the same.

      Instead I found another over-view video >> SAP HANA Academy - SPS 08 What's New: SAP HANA Answers - 1. Overview - YouTube

      Hi,

      i had problems installing it directly from SAP Hana studio. l had to use the

      Alternative and it worked for me:

      you can download the plugin as a zip file and follow the installation instructions inside:            https://answers.saphana.com/updates/plugin.zip

      Installation Instructions is in the file called install.txt:

      Download and unzip the plugin.zip from the HANA Answers website at

         https://answers.saphana.com/updates/plugin.zip

      In SAP HANA Studio:

          Click on Help->Install New Software

          Click on "Add" next to the "Work with" input box

      Select "Local..." and open the folder where you extracted the zip file

      Click the "OK" button and complete the wizard

      That's all! Now from SAP HANA Studio, highlight some text and press F10 or click the SAP HANA Answers button in the toolbar.

      Regards

      Socket factory must implement SchemeLayeredSocketFactory.

      What could be the reason for this error?
