  • Hello Rui,

    I have update the SDK of the SAP HANA Cloud Platform, and the “SAP HANA Cloud Platform local runtime” has been removed.

    I can not complete the Unit 1 🙁 .


  • Hi Rui, hi Sergio,

    I have the same problem.

    I tried with Eclipse Luna and Kepler and the corresponding SAP HANA Cloud Platform Tools but none of them offered the selection of the “SAP HANA Cloud Platform local runtime” when defining the servers in Eclipse (I only see the “SAP HANA Cloud Platform”).

    Any advice?

    Best regards
