Important Note:

The recommended techniques to leverage the power of SAP HANA in ABAP-based applications are ALV with Integrated Data Access, Open SQL, ABAP Core Data Services (CDS) views and ABAP Managed Database Procedures (AMDP) – Top-Down approach. The proxy-based approach using External View and Database Procedure Proxy objects should be avoided and only used for special cases – Bottom-Up approach.

    Hello Carine,

    Please i want to install the Trial Version of Netweaver SAP BW 7.5.

    To do it, i think i need to install first the ABAP SAPGUI for HANA 7.5 Trial. And the HANA Studio. Please can you let me know the steps to follow for the Installation. And also the links for the download.

    Best regards,

    Bruno de MNHM.
