A complementary installation guide to openSAP “Developing Java-Based Apps on SAP HANA Cloud Platform” MOOC (Week 1) – PART 2

Introduction : A lot of participants had trouble (including myself) doing the initial setup as the installation step was referred to another course and there were quite some points where troubleshooting was needed. This documents aims at smoothening out those rough edges for people who are not too savvy with the mentioned tools yet. Also a lot of screenshots make it much easy to understand.

A complementary installation guide to openSAP “Developing Java-Based Apps on SAP HANA Cloud Platform” MOOC (Week 1) – PART 1

Open the SAP Hana Cloud Platform Cockpit and navigate to Java Applications


Now use the Deploy Application button to start the wizard for Application (.war file) deployment


The file should be at the following link:


Please note that the Application name should be “espm”



Now click on the ESPM application


Start the Application if not started.


After start the Application URL is generated


If you run the application at this point you will notice that Product List is empty.


To resolve this problem go to Cockpit -> Persistence -> Databases and Schemas


Click on “New”


Replace p<username>trial.espm.web with yourHCPAccountName.espm.web


Click on Data Source Bindings


Click on new Binding


Select the Java Application name and save.


Now go back to the ESPM Java Application and Stop and Start it in that order.


After this step revisit the Application URL


Ahoy ! It would be a pleasant surprise to see the Product list being populated !

      Thank you Amol for sharing this information.

      The only issue i faced was creating New Data Source Binding.

      Later i realized that Binding can be created from newly created schema.:)

      Now i am able to see the Sales order items.

      this last step was missing in the course documentation and I lost much time to solve the issue.

      Good work!
