“Ever heard of node.js? Developing HANA xsodata services? Want to have SAP Experts, Thomas Jung and Rich Heilmann explain you in person how these topics merged?”

Great! You must continue reading.


SAP’s newest XS engine is evolved and is now called XS Advanced; Due to the new cloudfoundry basis, Node.js is one of the runtimes;

Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform runtime environment for developing server-side Web applications.

XSA is part of HANA SPS11, and is awesome. Besides having the cloud foundry basis to offer a choice in runtimes, another great move of SAP to embrace the open source community solutions. This will bring a lot more openness to the XS stack due the availability of node.js as runtime.

Obviously offering full integration with the HANA engine. But also having an opensource server side platform with tons of modules available to do… anything. Just a glimpse;
